The importance of preserving traditions of the people formed two opinions. Some believe that traditions must be maintained so people remember their national characteristics. After all, if the country has no tradition, people will take the culture and customs of other countries. In the vast majority of cases this does not lead to good results, you lose the identity of the people. Why try to adopt the lifestyle and thoughts of other groups and nationalities, rejecting the foundations of their own homeland?
Because of this thoughtless re-apply other people's standards, people began to lose individuality, and because of this, there were many problems of modern society. Previously, children were raised differently, and they grew gentle and honoring his family and their ancestors. Now the children are mostly at a very low level of moral development. They do not know their ancestors, their roots, because they have not told the parents, who may themselves do not know.
Of course, it is important to devote time to the new trends in the education of youth, but one should not forget the history of the Motherland. Introduce children to the wonderful arts and crafts in museums or at exhibitions, you show them the value and importance of the work of masters who use the traditions of the Russian people.
The news you read and see, has ceased to monitor the achievements of the individual. The man remained in the shadow of world catastrophes and technological innovations. This may result in the loss of a sense of patriotism and civic responsibility, ignorance of what can be proud of the Russian people.
Tradition does not include all that was done by ancestors. Basically, it is the most valuable and important of practical activities, habits and customs of the people, that you need to pass to our descendants. To keep the tradition you need to start with their own families, studying its history.
