Grandmothers play a role in maintaining culture by nurturing their grandchildren so
that they grow up to value traditional morals and beliefs. For example, they could
raise the girls to believe and accept the traditional female role, which is, unfortunately,
one of dependence on the man as a breadwinner, while her responsibility is to care for
the family; this contradicts new feminist beliefs which emphasise independence. The
essence of the grandmother’s role in this scenario is to ensure that she creates a
balance between the African culture and the Western culture; so that the girl grows up
having grasped the concepts of the modern woman yet still appreciating a woman’s
role in the traditional society. Thus, cultural beliefs are somewhat maintained.

Mrs Margaret Olayide Sasegbon talked extensively about the family structure and
grandparenting which she said is beginning to decline in Nigerian society. The
purpose of families is to maintain the well-being of their members and of society.

She feels that families should continue to offer predictability, structure, and safety as
members mature and participate in the community. In most societies, and the
Nigerian society is no exception, it is within families that children acquire socialization
for life outside the family, and act as the primary source of attachment, nurturing, and
socialization for society. She emphasizes additionally, that the basic unit for
meeting the needs of its members provides a sense of boundaries for performing
tasks in a safe environment, ideally building a child into a functional adult,
transmitting culture, and ensuring continuity of humankind with precedents of
discipline and knowledge.
