Rules of Friendship

Source: "The Social Guidebook to Norway 2"

In many places around the world

Kids are raised to contribute to a family

To become part of a group

To depend on the group

To contribute to the group



They are shown how to give and take from that group

They should contribute when they can

They will receive if they need

They depend on that group for survival



In certain countries

Working adults may share bank accounts with their parents until they get married

And you do not need to go far away to encounter that

Actually you do not need to get outside Europe


In Norway, children are raised to become independent and self-sufficient

It influences behavior throughout their lives


Independence is at the core of Norwegian Friendships
