Latvia has some similarities with Polish customs, although they are completely different countries. The thing is that in Latvia there is no abortion as such, a ban has been imposed on them, and large families still retain their positions.
However, children require that the family budget be sufficient to ensure that every child has decent conditions for further development and learning. Everyone needs to be taught, but how to do this if the parents' financial resources cannot be calculated to allow all children to get higher education and thereby give them the opportunity to get a prestigious job.
It is important not only for parents to arrange a decent life for their child. This is also in the interests of the state itself, and therefore the government in Latvia itself, first of all, creates all the conditions for obtaining a good education and provides assistance to people who are not always able to solve problems with education and creating a sufficient standard of living on their own.
Young families in Latvia begin their life together by first creating a material base, after which they plan their families so as not to create unnecessary problems for themselves with a large number of children.
Despite the fact that in Latvia children are always a great joy, it will still be much better if there are sufficient conditions for their upbringing. Help in raising children is also provided by grandparents, who with great pleasure take on the responsibilities of raising children, caring for them while parents are busy at work.
The father, although he can help his wife in caring for the child, and will not even refuse to take parental leave, refuses to do the dirtiest work. He will never refuse to go out with the child for a walk, but only if the wife will dress him and completely collect everything she needs for the trip. In order to feed, change, bathe the child - this is something the father cannot, and will never do.
Not only does the entire upbringing of children practically rests on the shoulders of the mother, a woman, moreover, must also maintain perfect cleanliness in the house. A man in a family has complete and undeniable power, when a woman is obliged to create comfort in the house and convenience for living. Moreover, this state of affairs does not oppress women at all, because they find special pleasure in bringing glossy cleanliness in the house.
In addition, in Latvia a woman, even if she is loaded with work and affairs in the morning, always manages to take care of herself and always remains beautiful and well-groomed at any time of the day. It is simply impossible to imagine how she succeeds, because you cannot see a woman in Latvia who does not know how and what to do with her time.
if she combines work and household and can bring significantly more income for the family, the man is still considered the main one and is the main breadwinner. A somewhat strange situation in which a woman could have long ago taken all rights into her own hands, but this does not happen, because women have always respected masculine strength and authority.
Love and respect in the family is always present and in any position, even if a man is the master and authority. A man will always support his wife, and she, in turn, will always be on the side of her husband, no matter what happens. Everyone sees their own happiness in family relationships, and Latvians understand family relationships in their own way.
It is very interesting to choose a name for a child in Latvia. For this, all relatives gather together, each of whom shares his possible proposals. However, the names that can be chosen by the elders are of great importance. It turns out that parents cannot independently decide on the choice of a name for their children and they simply have to accept the names that their grandparents choose for their children. These can be names in honor of saints or ancestors and you have to put up with them, because this tradition has existed for a very long time.
In recent years, a large number of single mothers have appeared in the country who have to raise their children without a father; there are also a lot of children who were destined to be born in an incomplete family, out of wedlock. In this situation, it is very difficult for mothers to raise a child alone, despite the fact that the help of parents is a big plus when the mother has to go to work ahead of schedule.
Child benefits in Latvia cannot help the mother to get out of the problem, and therefore, the government is currently considering new provisions to somehow make life easier for children in single-parent families.
Many mothers who cannot even hope for the help of their parents are forced to leave their children in orphanages, and it is in this direction that strong help from the state goes. Children in orphanages should receive everything that they cannot receive in their family.
Education in Latvia is also becoming more developed today, and every child can receive a complete education. From elementary school to higher education at a prestigious university - all this is available and possible for all parents.
If desired and with financial resources, parents in Latvia try to send their children to study abroad, which is currently becoming very fashionable. This increases the opportunity for children and adolescents to get a more prestigious job and get a good position.
Not always everything works out right away, but in Latvia the inhabitants of the country themselves try to do everything in their power to create a normal and decent standard of living for themselves. Working for yourself, for your country and for your children is the most important thing that needs to be done to get the opportunity to develop further.
