The children had to help their mothers. Sons of Boers who were not yet 16 years old, became part of the Boer commandos. One of the clinching factors in the South African War was that the soldiers were worried about their families in the concentration camps. With the women in the concentration camps, there was nobody to supply the fighting farmers with food, shelter or ammunition. The leaders of the commandos were therefore forced to make peace.
