Abstract:In this study, the effects of children's economic contributions on parents' allocation of time for income-earning activities, care of preschool children, nonincome home production, and leisure activities are estimated. It is found that children within the Nigerian town of Ile-lfe contribute substantially to family income, play an important role in nonincome home production and child care activities, and that these activities have considerable influence over parents' allocation of time.
