REIS, Daniela Castro dos et al. The Use of Children's Time in the Urban and Riverside Context in the Amazon. Pesqui. prát. psicossociais [online]. 2021, vol.16, n.1, pp. 1-13. ISSN 1809-8908.

The objective of this study was to verify the differences in the use of children's time in urban and rural contexts. Information was collected on the use of daily time of 75 children (44 girls and 31 boys, between 5 and 14 years). The instruments used were the Sociodemographic Instrument and Inventory of Routines. The results showed statistically significant differences regarding the use of time, besides showing contextual differences between urban and riverside population. In the riverside context the participants performed activities related to Housekeeping and Conversation, in comparison to the urban one in which the use category of the Computer stood out. It should be noted that the beneficiaries have considerable importance in relation to the valuation of schooling, which may be related to the differences found between beneficiaries and non-beneficiaries. The existence of activities cited exclusively in some contexts allows us to infer which developmental paths are being followed by children living in different cultural contexts.
