This paper discusses the indigenous child rearing practices and development in Nigeria and how it affects the child’s upbringing. It also reveals that the way a child is reared greatly influences the child’s development mentally, socially, emotionally, physically and morally.However in recent times, educational institutions such as Nursery & Day care centres have taken over the responsibility of rearing the child.The paper suggests that the school curriculum should be improved on to include the rudiments needed for child rearing and development and also teachers as custodians of ethnics and moral should make sure that these rudiments in the curriculum are transmitted to the children.
