Every culture has different traditions, religions, and ways to show thoughts and feelings. Most important, every culture has a set of rules that people are expected to follow.
These rules are not written down, but we learn them from family, teachers, elders, and friends. In various ways (by being told, by observing, by making mistakes), we learn what is expected of us when we are children, when we are adults, and when we are elders. We learn what is expected of us as men or as women. Culture teaches us how to behave and what is ok and not ok for us to do.
