Abstract:This special issue of 'Africa Development' brings together scholarship that speaks to the multifaceted roles played by parents in Africa in the lives of their children within the overall socialization process. The eleven papers included fall under three general categories reflecting the sub-themes suggested in the call for submissions: parents' involvement in their children's education including matters of sexuality, men in children's lives, and children with little or no adult supervision for long periods of time, also referred to as latchkey children. Contributions: Introduction: Parents' involvement in children's lives in Africa (Mwenda Ntarangwi); Dating practices and patterns of diclosure among in-school adolescents in Oyo state, Nigeria (Agunbiade Ojo Melvin); Parent-child communication on sexuality-related matters in the city of Lagos, Nigeria (Michael O.N. Kunnuji); Mothers' constructions of their roles in the literary education of their children (Ngozi Anyikwa and Ngozi Obidike, on Nigeria); Parents' engagement in adult literacy and its impact on their children's schooling (Efua Irene Amenyah, on Togo); From the will to the field: parent participation in early childhood education in Madagascar (Colleen Loomis and Abdeljalil Akkari); Husbands in wives' shoes: changing roles in child care among Cameroon's urban residents (Henry Kam Kah); Where is my daddy? An exploration of the impact of absentee fathers on the lives of young people in Botswana (Gloria Thupayagale, Tennyson Mgutshini and Zethu Zerish Nkosi); Children's experiences of support received from men in rural KwaZulu-Natal (Tawanda Makusha, Linda Richter and Deevia Bhana); Latchkey experiences of school-age children in low-income families in Akwa Ibom state, Nigeria (Mildred Ekot); 'Arming the rebels for development': parental involvement among fishing communities in Tanzania (Paul Wabike); Forced into adulthood: an exploration of pyscho-social dynamics in child headed households (Bernadette Muyomi, on Kenya).
