    and that he or she was protected


    Wearing was gradual, and training in cleanliness was delayed until a child could walk. Care was taken so that the child was not unduly agitated, "and that" he or she was protected from harm.

    Is "and that" equal to "and so that"?

    What does the first part mean?

    Should that be 'weaning'?

    Without exception, a child of most Southwest Indian tribes was treated with warmth and permissiveness during the period of infancy. Weaning was gradual, and training in cleanliness was delayed until a child could work. Care was taken so that the child was not unduly agitated, and that he or she was protected from harm.

    I'm sorry. I didn't thought that you may need the whole text for elaborating on the grammatical usage of "that"!

    You wrote "wearing' instead of "weaning". That led to my question.

    As far as I know, in 'so that' structure we could leave out that not so. I mean we can say so that means the same as so. But vice versa is seen here!
