The fact that the consumer attitude towards natureIt is unacceptable, many religious and public figures have long been saying. Today, the scientific world also begins to assert that, along with the degenerating nature, people are unequivocally degenerating. This is expressed not only in the spiritual, but also in the physical weakening of man. Happiness and the personality itself are falling apart, because mental balance is disturbed.
Strongly affects the development of childrenurban lifestyle. Everyone recognizes that careful treatment of nature must be brought up from an early age. However, our children study the world of plants and animals from pictures in books, movies and television programs. It is unlikely that such a preparation for life can teach them the habits of the animal world and give a sense of the life of the forest, teach the signs that preceded the change of the seasons.
Despite the fact that in Japan, urbanization has reachedsignificant heights, there neutralize its negative impact on children, developing in them a careful attitude to nature. For this purpose, the program of studying various subjects includes compulsory hikes and excursions, and all at school there is a constant course of "admiring nature".
If we compare our natural resources, with theirthe richest plant and animal world, and the Japanese, it is difficult even to imagine what abilities our schoolchildren possessed, if they were taught admiration? All our emotions develop in the process of cognition. At the same time, only adult people, performing certain actions, play a decisive role in manifesting and fixing certain feelings in children, capable of developing not only a careful attitude towards nature, but also a whole range of certain properties of character.
Therefore, in conclusion, I would like to urgeparents, take responsibility for their children and, postponing an endless homely bustle and a ghostly concern about the material, to start independently teaching their children lessons of admiring nature, at least once a week. Take time and opportunity to turn to the sources of life, so that all together learn to admire the wonderful world in which we still live.
