To bring up a chaste man, of course, could not every family. This vital task on the shoulder only the family, the whole atmosphere of life which contributes to the moral, aesthetic, labour and physical training of children, resulting successfully implemented their sex education is an important aspect of human relationships.
In the lecture on the sexual education A. S. Makarenko emphasized that "proper sex education, as any education human nature is achieved, of course, at every step, if not properly organized family life, if, under the guidance of the parents is growing real man"*.
And further: "In matters of sex education is decisive is not any separate ways specifically designed for sex education, and the General view of educational work, all his picture as a whole"**.
The atmosphere of the family determines the correct formation of the whole person, including her genitals.
For education of high morals of children it is important that the father and mother were themselves example, would be authoritative for the child. A. S. Makarenko noted that the true parents ' authority is created only when the children see the political and civilian father and mother. He wrote: "They (children) should know that you are a public figure, and be proud of you, your successes, your merits before the society. And just in case this pride is a healthy pride, if a public entity children understandable if they are not proud of just your good suit, your car or hunting rifle"***. This idea is well confirmed by the practice of education for many families in our days.
As a rule, in families where parents are careful and creative work in production and are respected by friends and children, there grows a nice hard-working young shift, ready to continue the work of the older generations. These young people are an example of ethical behavior - they are modest, decent and noble in their feelings, they are characterized by respect for elders, the desire to provide any assistance to those who need it.
The civil authority of parents not only contributes to raising public traits in children. It allows them to understand the essence of high moral behavior of parents, their ability to save from destruction and damage sincere feelings of love and respect.
You know how proud people are old enough, not only by position, which reached their authoritative parents in society, but also their personal charm and respect to each other, duration of their joint amicable life, the freshness of feelings and experiences. It is these parents their children often say: "They are so well lived a life that was familiar and even outwardly resemble each other..."
Most often, such a clean and beautiful relations between parents cause the desire of children to imitate them. Later, becoming adults, they preserve their traditions, saving tips and become no less worthy people.
The civil authority of parents starts to act positively on children in the early stages of their development.
Seeing as respectful talk about their work, about friends father and mother as they care for each other, the child tries to behave the same way.
Once on the street a few boys surrounded the girl had taken her portfolio, began to push, pull the spit. The passing of the guys, but none of them paid attention to it. But one boy, tall and apparently under the age of attackers, rushed into the midst of the guys. Waving his portfolio, he shouted: "don't you dare, shame on you, the brave one was, because she's a girl!". The attention of the boys switched to our hero. He got hard, but at home he proudly said, "had a Fight, but it don't matter, will be held. There are boys girl hurt". "Well done! - praised father.- Do always."
It is safe to say that these words the child will remember for a lifetime. The desire to protect the weak, old man or girl will gradually become for him a moral norm of behavior.
