A typical rural household consists of multiple generations - the old, the middle-aged, and the young. Adults provide for the needs of the children and the elderly, the elderly socialize the children and give advice to other adults, and children provide labour and companionship to parents and grandparents. The hand of the child cannot reach the shelf nor can the hand of the elder get through the neck of the gourd on the shelf (Akan proverb). Thus, old and young support each other in economic and social activities.
