Abstract

Nikolai says that in the past Kalmyk upbringing did not involve scolding children. People taught their children through legends, proverbs and sayings. When a child broke something, the parents could have said something like this: ‘A good child keeps what his father has accumulated, and a bad one only wastes or breaks inheritance’. Girls were brought up by their mothers, for the marriageability of girls depended on their skills and ability to do the household chores.
