Traditional Russian families

In Russian culture, the family is very important to individuals. A traditional Russian family has the man as the head of the family and the woman as the neck, as it is said. Women used to stay at home and raise the children while the men were working and bringing money home. Besides the mother, father and their children, the grandparents were very involved in a Russian family. They help with raising the children and with the household. If a person of the Russian family is in need, the rest of the family is obliged to help. Today, Russian society has changed and the Russian families have become more modern. Most of the grandparents do not live in a household with the parents anymore. In a Russian family, it is common for both parents to work nowadays. The grandparents can keep the children for holidays or for a longer period of time to help raise them while their parents are working.
