Children are adored in Tuvalu and this is a photo of a grandfather adoring his grandson and namesake. Chidlren seldomly cried in Tuvalu, they were always being held, and their needs were quickly satisfied. After a child is born, the mother is waited on for about a year by other women in the village so that her only job is taking care of that child. I left knowing for a fact that children are never spoiled by attending to their needs. Tuvalu children grow to be generous, respectful teens and later adults. This was a gift to me when it came time to raise my own children. I now had a choice but of good modeling from the Tuvalu culture.
