Parents send their kids to work for their relative in the country so they can learn responsibility, do work, and learn some discipline instead of sitting around all day. Also, maybe because the kid is the only one fit enough to work to get more money.

* BirdyTheMighty: [[spoiler: After everyone in her family/household is dead, to causes both related and unrelated to the plot, Sayaka]] is sent to work on a farm with relatives. * ''HanasakuIroha'': Ohana's mother runs away with her boyfriend and sends Ohana to live with her grandmother who owns a {{ryokan}}. And then the grandmother forces Ohana to ''work'' there. At first it seems somewhat cruel, but grandma's point actually was to not make Ohana privileged over other people who work there.

This trope is common in ComingOfAge stories. When, the child is now has to work for the relative's. In the first week, they will usually try to get a way of doing it or complain that there isn't any TV, games, or any other entertainment they are used to. But they are eventually forced to work anyway. They tend to make a lot of mistakes at first. But, when they go through a HardWorkMontage, they get the hang of it and receive CharacterDevelopment. The kids are usually sent to work on the relative's farm, ranch or any other business. The child is usually a CityMouse if the story is set in the country and may complain or try to get around being to the relative's place. In other stories, a CountryMouse kid might have to be sent to the city so that they can have some education in a school there. They are sent there so they can work for the relative, and won't won't be a burden, when the rest of the family can't work are get enough money to support themselves. The child in this story tends not to have as much problems like the CityMouse. They also might actually look forward to being in the city. Although, sometimes CountryMouse in other stories will be just as lazy and uncooperative as the typical CityMouse.
