Lots of Love

Most families in Paraguay are extended meaning they live with aunts, cousins, grandparents, and other extended family members. Three or four generations most likely live together in one house or farm. Families who live in rural areas usually live on the farm together in wooden houses with dirt floors and grass or tin roofs. Urban homes are usually made of concrete and have tile roofs.

Interesting Facts

Many parents move to foreign countries or urban areas to work leaving children to be cared for by grandparents and older siblings.
