2) Having the village raise our kids would give us more time to hang out with "other villagers," a.k.a. equally exhausted mothers. Hey, we need our mom friends just us much as this mom does:
3) Along those same lines? If the village raised our kids, it would help us "learn important parenting skills" (see also "gossip").
4) If the whole village were raising our kids, we'd have a solution to our children's complaint that we are "The Worst Mommy in the Whole Wide World" ... we could just move them on to the next mommy! We acquire one or two new kids, send ours to the next hut and studiously attempt to not ruin the new offspring. And just when both mommies AND children are about to lose their schmidt, SWAP!
