Children across Cultures and Family Contexts Culture supports expected patterns of behavior  and ways in which behavior is accepted  resulting in differences in how children behave  and when they assume various  responsibilities. Mayan children learn the: primacy of adult work. importance of learning by watching. independence of child motivation. These children help the family, run errands, tend   younger siblings, and are responsible for almost all  necessary maintenance activities (e.g. dressing) by  age 5.
