The family has always occupied one of the most important places among human values. This is understandable, since all people at different stages of their lives are somehow connected with the family, it is a natural part of this life.
It is important for every person to have a family, a home. Family is a fortress, salvation from difficulties, protection from a cruel world. A strong family gives warmth, comfort, tranquility. After all, at home we are surrounded by native people who love us, understand, always try to help. Happy is the one who was born and grew up in a close-knit family.
Why do we need a family?
The most important people in life are father and mother, who gave life. Under the parental wing we spend childhood and adolescence – the most beautiful time in life. This is the time of learning, mastering the world.
The family first of all forms the outlook of the new person. After all, the family is a model of peace within the apartment. Here begins
the formation of personality. We monitor the relations of parents, for their conversations, for their hobbies. Mom and Dad – for us the first and main examples for imitation. They educate us, pass on their life experience, family traditions.
From the climate that reigns in the family, on how comfortable and joyful the home, depends on what the child will be interested in. In dysfunctional families, children seek understanding not in the walls of the house, but in the streets of strangers. The world is very cruel. A good family is protection from cruelty. As often adults, having their own families, in the turmoil of days, we forget to call parents, take care of health, visit! And they seem to understand everything and forgive us for inattention.
It’s not difficult to create a family. In order to make a decision for two people to live under the same roof, there is enough recognition in love. Of course, the family should love each other. But you need also understanding, patience, respect, readiness to listen and help. You have to be ready to sacrifice for your family with your time, desires. It
is necessary to feel responsibility to loved ones, to give them their attention.
The family can become truly strong when it passes the test of time. Life is not without cloud. Joys are replaced by sorrows, hopes are sometimes justified, but often end in disappointment. And every family is tested for strength. In a real family, the problems are solved together, the troubles are transferred together. That house where sincerity, loyalty, unanimity, where a strong shoulder is felt, is durable and reliable. Time only strengthens it.
In addition to the family, there are other values that fill our lives: work, friends, hobbies, politics. But it seems to me that nothing can replace a family. The time spent in the circle of close people is invaluable.
In Russian classical literature, LN Tolstoy worked extensively on the subject of the family. One of the main things she is in the epic novel “War and Peace”. Drawing a peaceful life, the writer describes the Rostov family with great warmth. They openly rejoice and openly weep, openly fall in love, and all together experience the love dramas of everyone. Their hospitality is famous all over Moscow, they are ready to receive and fond of anyone: in the family. According to Tolstoy, it is the woman who creates the family hearth. She grows children, she lives all her life that House, which becomes her main world, a reliable and quiet rear for her husband and the source of everything for the younger generation. She claims the dominant system of moral values in the house, she spins the threads that connect all the members of her family. The ideal of such a woman for a writer is Natasha Rostov.
The novel “Anna Karenina” is devoted to the problems of family and marriage. The theme of the family, first put forward, turned out to be interconnected with social, social, philosophical issues – the work gradually expanded to a major social novel in which the writer reflected contemporary life. Tolstoy made a severe sentence to the society with his deceitful hypocrisy, which brought Anna to suicide. In this society there is no place for sincere feelings, but only established rules that can be circumvented, but hiding, deceiving everyone and yourself. A sincere, loving person is rejected by society as a foreign body. Tolstoy condemns such a society and the laws established by it.
Thus, I believe that every person should have a family. Neither money nor power will give us disinterested love, they will not heal spiritual wounds, they will not save us from loneliness, they will not bring true happiness.
