Questions from "Ake: The Years of Childhood" 1st 7 chapters : LUSENET : nonwesternlit : One Thread

1.Why was it that when parents had problems with their children they brought them to stay with Wole's parents for an indefinite amount of time? At the end of that time had the problem been resolved and were they returned home to their parents?

2.Why was the "wetting" of the sleeping mats such a big deal? Why was it that so many youngsters of various ages wet their mats at night? Do you think the public flogging and humiliation cured them of urinating on their mats at night?
