Brazil is a country where even in the modern world remains familiar traditional structure of society, namely, the division into classes. Thus it has its own characteristics, depending on what class it belongs. The difference between the classes in the Brazilian society is very evident, it belongs to the class determines the social and financial situation of the person and his family. Preserved to the present times, the class structure of Brazilian society implies the existence of three classes: higher, middle and lower. Young Brazilians very rarely go outside their class in the second half — most of the satellite or companion of life found within their class. The number of Brazilian families are also different in different classes. Contrary to the global stereotype, according to which, the richer layer of the society, the lower birth rate in Brazil, all with accuracy on the contrary. It is from the upper class are particularly numerous, and it is in the upper class are thoroughly relate to national traditions and preserve them. The upper class of Brazilian society — landowners, this bar were more large families, and the power of the head of household applies not only to home. Under his control are his brothers, sisters and numerous close and distant relatives. In addition, this Chapter governs all employees who work for him and live in the territory of his possessions. Birthdays, holidays and various religious dates is customary to celebrate with a big family at one table. The middle class in Brazil are not numerous families, though among them, too, can meet large numbers of family units.
As a rule, young people from the lower class, growing up, leaving family, and the girls are left in the family to care for younger siblings and for parents.
totally bringing up children
Most characteristically, the boys and girls used significantly different approaches. Only up to five years boys and girls can grow and play together, upon reaching five years the boys begin to communicate primarily with boys and girls more closer to home, and from such an early age are taught the skills of housekeeping and care techniques for younger children. It is interesting that the attitude to children and such an upbringing is reflected in the language. Babies in Brazil are called, and very young children called, regardless of gender. Since five years, the girl name and a boy starting from the age of thirteen and on, respectively. Already at this age, the way of life of Brazilian children varies considerably: in that time, as a boy playing with his peers in football and other outdoor games, the girl most of the day spends at home, helping the mother in caring for younger brothers and sisters. Upon reaching fifteen years of age the Brazilian is called (boy), and the Brazilian — (female) and this time they have to prepare for responsible adulthood. Before it was decided to give the girl to marry immediately upon reaching years and, as a rule, men — years older than she is. Boys with fifteen years had to get an education and preparing for future marriage and working in the profession. For a long time for the girls of Brazil was incapable of learning, therefore, married in, and she is completely devoted themselves to home, husband and children. At the moment, the marriages at a later age, often even closer to thirty years and after a long courtship. Traditions in society is still strong, especially in the rich classes, but the majority of Brazilians are engaged in the career, choose your future half and independently determine their own destiny. However, girls from lower classes often cannot obtain a prestigious education for lack of money in the family, they receive secondary education and mainly occupy jobs in simple posts belonging to the highest classes of society, still practiced the traditional old marriage procedure. When my daughter appears to be close friends about, parents gradually introduce him into your family circle, from time to time inviting you to lunch or dinner. Alone with the beloved, however, remain allowed. A long courtship ends with an engagement, then the bride for several months engaged in the preparation of their dowry, and only then is the wedding ceremony. Family values for Brazilians — not an empty phrase.’ (‘I don’t have enough rear.’) — you can hear from the man who broke up with his wife. In wealthy families, and among middle-class families often with children, caring babysitter, in a lower class parents handle themselves, the older children often help to look after the younger. In the Brazilian understanding of the educational process looks peculiar. If the child misbehaves and does well, and if serious claims to him no, no one will pay him more time than it requires the usual necessity. Children in Brazil are allowed to grow independently and learn from their mistakes. School in Brazil gives quite a modest level of education, so for admission to higher education required tutoring, and they can afford only a wealthy family. Children are raised to respect their elders, and taught to take care of younger members of the family. In Brazilian families, older siblings support younger life, it is considered correct. Younger sons often after getting married remain in their parents home to care for their parents when they are already at an advanced age. Girls after marriage go to live in the house to her husband and parents visit occasionally, usually in the days of the big family holidays when at a large table the whole family is going.
