Parents are imparting moral lessons to their children. But do they comply?When the annoyance of the regular visitor increased, the father said to his son: "When he comes today, you must say that I am not here". When the son playing in the yard, the visitor arrived and asked him, is the father there. "Dad is inside," he said. He picked him up and went to his father. He didn't care that his father's eyes were red with hatred.
When the visitor returned, his father asked him, ready to be beaten with a stick, "Why did you not obey father?" The son said: "I obeyed my father. Didn't my father tell me to tell only the truth no matter what?"
Values that are put into action are more effective than values that are preached. Contradictions in the words and deeds of adults can confuse the younger generation. If no good deeds as described in the textbooks and in the virtuous lessons can be seen around them, what will they imitate? Is it necessary to write textbooks and write exams to teach moral awareness and good habits? It is enough to create the new generation's conditions to see and practice them directly in the growing environment. From growers, growings get the nutrition and models they need. If those who impart virtuous lessons themselves go on the path of error, what will the successors follow? The lessons learned or those who taught them?
Is it enough to teach lessons and not to obey?
