Children prepared to be good citizens
In this fall, marked by the general elections, families have to become aware of the importance of educating in the values that will make our children good citizens.Families, as the fundamental cells of society, are concerned about the future of the country.
When the time comes, when the electoral programs of the different parties begin to be known, we will study in detail those aspects that affect us most directly: family support plans, defense of life, educational project, measures in sanitary matters, support for households with dependents ... And the direction of our vote will have to do with the degree of confidence that those electoral promises inspire us.
Political commitment is born in the family
But before reaching that point, when the ballot is deposited in the box, the family has a primary role in socialization for political practice. That is, it is within the family where the children will learn the importance of participation of citizens in politics. And it is essential that parents understand that this task does not consist in indoctrinating about political positions, but in awakening in the children the interest to take care of what happens to others.
In the words of Daniel Ureña, general director of Mas Consulting Group, specializing in political analysis, "the family is the perfect setting to awaken interest in politics in capital letters, that is, to transmit values and ideas that should be present during life as adults, principles such as respect for others, service, justice, freedom, etc. can and should be instilled in the family.
