Family planning has always been a very important moment, as it is necessary to count on your financial possibilities for raising children. After all, the child must be sent first to school, to give him a good higher education and then, if possible, to support him in every possible way.
In Poland, it is very difficult to plan a family and children, because in this country abortion is prohibited by law and spouses have to be very careful not to surround themselves with a bunch of crying babies who need to be nurtured, fed and raised. The state can not be relied upon, because all the help from it ends on only one child support.
Because of the prohibition of abortion, Polish families are quite numerous, but many young people are now thinking about what should be tried and stay after the birth of one or two children. Whether it is possible or not, the birth rate in Poland is very high and increases every year more and more.
However, the number of children born out of wedlock is also increasing. Poles are always happy to have a baby, as it was not difficult to educate and raise him to his feet.
Mother will never give up her child. The truth is that an unforeseen situation can always happen and a child left without parents gets to an orphanage. Children’s homes in Poland look like ordinary houses where children are surrounded by kind people, love and respect, the rooms are full of toys, things and children always get the best quality and best food.
The State of Poland directs its attention to orphanages and tries to increase the number of children accepted by Polish families from these orphanages, doing everything to ensure that each child has a family of their own. For an adopted child, increased control is established, constant monitoring of how he lives with foster parents.
Numerous Polish families usually gather together for all the great holidays, which include Christmas, Easter and of course all jubilees, and birthdays of household members. In the family of Poles, a man is considered the main earner, and the head of the family, irrespective of the fact that the wife can work in a more prestigious job and receive much more than her husband.
In the family, the husband performs purely male functions, something that a strong man must do. Everything about the household remains in the care of the woman. However, both spouses are engaged in the upbringing of the child, although here the spouse can limit his functions: he can walk with the child, read him a book, play with him and even with pleasure redeems him. However, only the woman should feed and dress the child. To this the man does not touch ever.
It should be noted that, despite its busyness, a Polish woman can look beautiful at any time, she is always well-groomed and beautiful, whatever she does. In the house of the Polish woman there will always be order, nowhere is it possible to see even the slightest sign of dust, in the closet there will never be men’s shirts with torn buttons or holes in socks.
Parents in Poland are always ready to help their children, take their grandchildren to their homes for the time being, and help with housework. In general, you can always rely on grandparents. Also, in addition, parents are consulted in Poland on all serious issues. The choice of a name for a child can not do without the participation of grandparents.
Here the most interesting action begins, therefore the choice of a name always takes place taking into account family traditions, church designations of a name and also, there are a number of state restrictions by names. By law, the name of the child should fully reflect his sex, you can not give names that can not be determined exactly by the male or female sex.
The name of a child is usually given at the time of baptism, and it can consist of two parts that are chosen according to Slavic traditions and Christian names, which are chosen based on the child’s birth or the day of his baptism.The choice of two names is due to the fact that according to tradition the child is given a Slavic name, but at the christening the priest can ask the parents to give the child another Christian name, so both names are chosen in advance.
Children in Poland could have had three or even four names before, but now the law forbids having more than two names. The name for the child can also be chosen on the basis of fashion, for example, the kid can give the name of the hero of Poland, famous people or even the hero of the sensational film.
With regards to the surnames, they usually go over the male line, and the spouse takes the husband’s name after the wedding. However, this is not mandatory, the wife can leave her maiden name or simply attach her husband’s surname to her surname, although in this case the children will have a surname by their husband.
The husband, in turn, can also add his surname to his surname. However, the surname should not consist of more than two parts, otherwise a woman or a man will have to refuse any additional name.
Choosing a name by joint efforts is the oldest tradition of the Polish people. Throughout the history of Poland, the whole family gathered for this, and the selection of a name for the baby was approached very seriously. As the proverb says: how to call the ship so it will float.
In addition to choosing a name, almost all families keep the memory of their ancestors, and almost every Pole can say with confidence that he knows everything about his family. In Polish families, family relics, various photographs or portraits of ancestors are kept, families always gather for Christmas and the Easter celebration with the whole family, even if now all the members of the family live in different cities. On such holidays come all without exception, Polish relatives.
In addition, Polish families organize music evenings, which are also traditional, and all relatives also gather for such evenings. To such evenings a dinner is prepared, consisting of traditional Polish dishes, which do not change from year to year.
