Far from the mainstream of society, the pastoral community of Chillihuani in
the high Peruvian Andes rears children who are well-adjusted, creative, and
curious. They exhibit superior social and cognitive skills and maintain an
attitude of respect for all life as they progress smoothly from childhood to
adulthood without a troubled adolescence. What makes such child-rearing success
even more remarkable is that "childhood" is not recognized as a distinct phase
of life. Instead, children assume adult rights and responsibilities at an early
age in order to help the community survive in a rugged natural environment and
utter material poverty.
This beautifully written ethnography provides the first full account of child-
rearing practices in the high Peruvian Andes. Inge Bolin traces children's
lives from birth to adulthood and finds truly amazing strategies of child
rearing, as well as impressive ways of living that allow teenagers to enjoy the
adolescent stage of their lives while contributing significantly to the welfare
of their families and the community. Throughout her discussion, Bolin
demonstrates that traditional practices of respect, whose roots reach back to
pre-Columbian times, are what enable the children of the high Andes to mature
into dignified, resilient, and caring adults.
