Middle Anatolia, Türkiye

In Anatolia, the little boy of the house is generally equated with the family's future hopes. Since the family's livelihood is provided by the earnings of joint work, it is hoped that when the sons grow up, he will take over these jobs from his elders and take care of them in their old age. When daughters get married, they will settle in their husband's home and take care of their husband's family,. So daughters are raised knowing by their family that one day they will leave home. The concept of raising a daughter is based on the idea of ​​'representing the family well in her husband's home'.
