Does It Take a Family to Raise a Child?

Cooperative Breeding and the Contributions of Maya Siblings, Parents and Older Adults in Raising Children

This chapter uses time allocation data to observe first how Maya mothers resolve the allocation trade-off of investing in childcare and economic activities that support older children, and second, the role that fathers, children and older adults play in subsidizing the cost of reproduction. The Maya are an ideal population to examine the relative contribution of different classes of helpers since they are a natural fertility population, have large families, and mothers draw on help from a number of individuals. Emphasis is placed on cross-cultural comparison.
