African societies place greater emphasis on the inculcation of independence, self-reliance, and nurturance than do non-African societies (11).


Means were calculated for both males and females in each type of society. Although a few of the comparisons were statistically significant, the author concludes that the differences in child socialization for African and non-African societes are negligible.
