Our people have always attached great importance to the upbringing of children. This fact is obvious when people read the Turkmen proverbs, sayings, poetic folklore, legends, and parables. The book ‘Ömrümiň manysy’ by our Hero-Arkadag Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov, who adheres to national principles and values in this valuable work, is of great importance in this context.

The book’s first chapter ‘The Culture of Being’ is dedicated to education. The early choice of a profession, while the children are still at secondary school, makes this issue one of the great tasks facing the teachers and awakes interest in the book. Our Hero-Arkadag writes that a child's career begins with a mother. This fact takes the readers on a journey to the epicentre of folk art, called lullaby.
