The punishment

There's a lot that came from the parents' heads too. For example, in my house the boy could not stay at home helping his mother, he had to go to the field with his father. […] If he wanted to stay home, he would be beaten. And we had to help the mother to do the housework. [...] The father has to come back and have lunch ready. They are the parents who teach. And it goes from generation to generation.
