Sample text

ADLER Considering that the GDR and FRG had a very different ideological framework and value system one might expect that their values regarding child-rearing goals would also differ significantly. The 1966 Family Code in the GDR outlined the model of the “socialist family,” which was defined as the smallest cell of socialist society (Dennis, 1998). As such it featured key elements, such as a life-long marital union, gender equality, family-employment compatibility, and the socialization of children as socialist citizens (Dennis, 1998).

Also, the value of a child is relatively high, but it is significantly lower in the case of the younger generation (up to 30 years of age) because the value focus as well as the actual lives of that generation show a growing trend towards individualization. GENDER ROLES IN THE FAMILY In the Czech Republic, sharing the household work and family duties is still rather unequal from the point of view of gender. A majority of the population accepts the “traditional” Czech model of distinctive family roles, where the man primarily provides financial resources for the family and the woman is responsible for taking care of the family and the household.

Parents attend cultural events such as cinema, theatre, exhibitions or concerts less often with their children. Celebrating holidays and birthdays are some of the festive rituals usually involving small children and grandparents. A party with the child’s peers is usually organized separately. In the Czech Republic, the religious holidays celebrated most widely include Christmas and St. Nicholas’s Day. Compared with Christmas, Easter is not perceived as such an important holiday. This is because Czech society (with the exception of Southern Moravia and Eastern Bohemia) is significantly secularized.
