How is Laila’s son being educated in the male-dominated culture of the Taliban? How does Zalmai show that he is following his father’s example in how he responds to Laila and Mariam?

Zamai is immersed into the patriarchal culture that Rasheed prescribes. When he is with Rasheed he displays the same tries to copy the misogynistic bravado of his father. His father instructs him in the very narrow interpretation of Islam by the Taliban. Please submit each of your questions one at a time.
