Child Rearing and Education



Shortly before delivery, the expectant Kibbutz mother is taken to the central or regional hospital, which is part of the network of medical services maintained by the vast labor union federation in Israel. Several days following delivery, mother and infant return “home”—to the Kibbutz. The mother returns to her own quarters which she shares with her husband, while the infant is placed in the “infant house.” Henceforward the child is, with rare and exceptional interruptions, in the company of his peers until he graduates from the Mosad (institute), or high school, at the age of eighteen, when he becomes eligible for adult membership in the Kibbutz. As we shall see, the separation from the parents is only partial. The infant and child rearing process passes through several stages which we shall describe in some detail.
