Abstract In this program, children explain how they help around the house, list things they are forbidden to do, and tell what irritates them about their parents, while adults frankly discuss ways in which children are different from when they themselves were young. The video also examines the tension between tradition and change in Senegal through the story of a group of women who have succeeded in establishing their own fish processing business and the story of a young businessman who, as a religious leader's son, accepts that he will at some point have to give up his work to succeed his father.
