Regarded children as a blessing. Young boys would learn the trade of the father, and girls would rain at home with the mother, and learn how to run a household. Elderly were protected, and the children often were the ones taking care of them.
Only the sons of rich or more upper class citizens such as the pharaoh, scribes, and officials. They had the time to be educated because their fathers generally had more wealth, and stability to sacrifice the time to send them to school. Farmers children would probably never go because they needed to help on the farm.

The values parents are teaching are based on their social standings. For example: women were taught the basics of housekeeping, cooking, and making clothes. Men were taught to be leaders in school and in hope to one day enter the royal service.
The ancient Egyptians thought of Egypt as being divided into two types of land, the 'black land' and the 'red land'.
The 'black land' was the fertile land on the banks of the Nile. The ancient Egyptians used this land for growing their crops. This was the only land in ancient Egypt that could be farmed because a layer of rich, black silt was deposited there every year after the Nile flooded.
The 'red land' was the barren desert that protected Egypt on two sides. These deserts separated ancient Egypt from neighbouring countries and invading armies. They also provided the ancient Egyptians with a source for precious metals and semi-precious stones.
