What Are Some Mexican Family Values?

28 Sep

Here are some Mexican culture tips from Kwintessential on the role of family:

  • The family is at the centre of the social structure.
  • Outside of the major cosmopolitan cities, families are still generally large.
  • The extended family is as important as the nuclear family since it provides a sense of stability.
  • Mexicans consider it their duty and responsibility to help family members. For example, the will help find employment or finance a house or other large purchase.
  • Most Mexican families are extremely traditional, with the father as the head, the authority figure and the decision-maker.
  • Mothers are greatly revered, but their role may be seen as secondary to that of their husband.

Any expats find this to be true?
