– The child is a tiny element of a huge mechanism called the state. Its vector of movement may not be noticeable, but it is very important in the development of our civil law society, therefore our task is to educate a comprehensively developed patriot of our country.
The patriotic upbringing of a child is the basis for the formation of a future citizen, it is the result of a long pedagogical process, starting from early childhood. What qualities should we instill in the future patriot? First of all, this is love for the Motherland, as well as respect for the native land, the defenders of the Fatherland, state symbols, and traditions of the state.
Of course, our country is famous for true patriots who have accomplished outstanding feats. These feats become an example for the younger generation, and the people who committed it become an example for children to follow. All the various documentaries, exhibitions, lessons of courage about our heroes are a great opportunity to demonstrate to children what a real patriot looks like in our country, – shared the head of the regional branch of the All-Russian Youth Military Patriotic Public Movement Yunarmiya Danila Khmarenko.
