In order to create a full-fledged family, it is necessary for the state itself to create decent conditions, so that young families can have the opportunity to develop. However, young people themselves should strive to ensure that the family has well-being.
Usually, women tend to create a real family more than men, for whom freedom is sometimes more important than becoming a family man. However, in many countries, on the contrary, men are currently looking for stability in relationships, they have a desire to have a close and loved one nearby, who will always support and will always be there.
The only problem that exists today is that men give too little time to their children. Women are taking a lot of care, especially now. Firstly, it is the creation of a normal, stable environment in the home, housekeeping, the upbringing of children, a job that almost all women give a lot of time to. Housewives are getting smaller and smaller. Every woman would like to see her husband as often as possible with children.
In Lithuania, there is a situation where a man can take leave to care for a child and receive for this allowance. This makes the life of the mother easier, especially since many fathers are happy to agree to such duties. In addition, there are many families with many children in the country, although modern youth try to change this situation and stay on one or two children.
No problems have been observed with the birth rate in Lithuania so far, but everything can change if today’s attitude towards a large number of children in the family becomes a reality and give birth less. However, in the case when two or three children are brought up in the family, the father’s ability to take leave to care for the child is quite convenient. This gives the woman a little rest from their duties and the opportunity to return to work, especially if the woman occupies a rather high position.
Mostly in Lithuanian families, the breadwinner is a man who must provide a comfortable existence for his wife and his children. Before thinking about children, parents try to create a sufficient material base. Family planning in this case is now becoming very fashionable, because it is becoming more difficult to educate children in inadequate conditions. The age of men and women who enter into marital relations increases.
If you look into every Lithuanian family, you can see almost equal rights of both spouses. Man and woman in this case can perfectly replace each other in the upbringing of children, housekeeping. There are no strict restrictions, because the spouses are more eager for equality in the relationship and the position of the master or mistress here is increasingly being taken to the back burner.
The family is mutual respect, love and just understanding each other. You can not talk about whose work is harder and harder, because everyone does what he has the power and ability to do.
In Lithuania, it is very serious that families remain complete, because bringing up children to one parent is very difficult. In addition to the usual child support in the country, there is no longer any support for the mother or father of a single person. Divorce is the most extreme method when cohabitation is no longer possible for serious reasons.
In this regard, in Lithuania, children’s homes have a very high level of development, so that children left without parents could feel love and affection. Children’s homes do not even look like government institutions, because everything in them speaks of a real home, in which there is always parental warmth and caress, caring for every child. Children do not feel the lack of anything, all the employees of orphanages try to give as much warmth and care as they could give to their own children.
No less attention is paid to older people in Lithuania, for whom old people’s homes are opened. Not all children can provide enough attention to their parents and nursing homes – this is the best way out.
All this at first glance indicates that in Lithuania they do not take very much care of their own children and parents, but this is not so. A woman will never leave her children, even if she finds it difficult and very difficult to educate them alone. Even to foreign children, women pay no less attention than their own. The same goes for parents. Whenever possible, children always take their parents to their homes, or one of the children remains in their parents’ home in order to become a support for them in old age.
Each Lithuanian family is the custodians of traditional national customs, which are protected and transferred in an unchanged state through a generation to a generation. Children are transferred knowledge at a very early age, so that they can fully realize gradually everything that they need to honor, that they must also store and transmit in due time by inheritance to their children. Children are not brought up in strictness, but all the same parents for them is an indisputable authority and disobey their parents, it means simply treating them with disrespect.
No event in the life of a Lithuanian child or teenager occurs without the whole family assembling and discussing it in order to make a decision. Studying a child also becomes a subject of discussion, because parents think in advance what will be best for their children and where it is better to send them to study.
Almost ideal relations in the family in Lithuania are achieved by mutual consent between the spouses, when both participate in the upbringing, both can do household chores and understand each other like no other. Knowing how difficult it is for each of them, the spouses become closer and begin to realize that a strong family is possible only when there is mutual understanding.
