In different families, relationships are built on different principles. In some families, they are built on the principles of love, trust, acceptance and mutual assistance. Here children are loved, supported and guided. The family acts as a cohesive team.
In such families, children usually share their troubles and aspirations with their parents. Parents are interested in what is happening with their children, they know with whom they are friends, what excites them. Children are taken to various circles and even taught the basics of the profession. In such families whole dynasties of talented scientists, doctors, teachers and representatives of other professions grow. Parents try to pass on their experience and skills to their children and grandchildren, as well as worldly wisdom. And grandchildren often get even more experience and knowledge than children. Children feel love and acceptance from their parents and grow up happy and confident. They know that if something happens, they will always be helped, they will substitute a shoulder or simply regret it.
These are examples of happy families. Children from such families pass on to their children and grandchildren the same wonderful family values. It is important for them that in their families there was love, happiness, kindness, acceptance of each other, respect for other people’s values. They will always support the elderly, they are sensitive to the opinions of others and to the needs of others. It is important for them that every member of the family feel important and necessary.
There are other families. Love, trust, recognition, mutual assistance are not present here. Here man to man is a wolf. The basic principle of the family is to survive at all costs. Sometimes you have to fight for a piece of bread. The basic principles here are humiliation, dislike. Who is stronger is right. There is no respect for the opinion of a young child, for his needs and desires. Everyone is trying to grab what is possible. We must take it now or later nothing will be. Children who were not loved in childhood transfer their grievances to their husbands, wives, and children. They do not know what love, trust, mutual assistance in a family are; they do not know how to share with their loved ones neither inner feelings, nor values that are not there. There is nothing to pass on to future generations. Children grow up anxious, guarded, aggressive.
I would like all families to be happy and children grow up in them confident, kind, loving, respecting their parents and respecting their elders. Then happiness and joy, respect of parents, reverence of elders, faith, kindness will reign around us. The world will become better, kinder. It all depends on us. Everyone can try to build his own family on the principles that are close to him and make his family and friends happy, joyful, fill this world with happiness and kindness.
