Importance of Moral Education
Moral education means an ethical education to follow the good and right principles of life. It consists of some basic principles, like truthfulness, honesty, charity, hospitality, tolerance, love, kindness and sympathy. Moral education makes one perfect. Education is not aimed at obtaining only a degree.
Moral education can be learnt at home, school and college. The scope for imparting moral teaching to the children is greater in home than in school or college because greater part of time is spent at home.
Moral education can be imparted in a better way by examples and not by precepts. Our grown-ups often forget this golden rule and advise the younger to pursue good principles while they behave just opposite in their real life. This is a kind of hypocrisy.
It should not be forgotten that no deception on the part of the grown-ups go unnoticed by their children, because children are good observers. Parents should also take care that their children do not mix with the evil companions.
