Xi: Pass sound val­ues to chil­dren

China Daily (Canada) - - TOP NEWS -

Through the story, Xi told par­ents to pass down sound moral val­ues to their chil­dren from an early age, help them cul­ti­vate sound minds and en­sure their healthy growth so that they will be use­ful to the coun­try when they grow up.

“Par­ents should in­struct their chil­dren through word and deed, giv­ing them both knowl­edge and virtue and prac­tic­ing what they teach. They should help their chil­dren but­ton the first but­ton in their life­time and take the first step on the lad­der of life,” Xi said.

Only by re­al­iz­ing the Chi­nese dream of na­tional re­ju­ve­na­tion can the dreams of fam­i­lies come true, Xi added, call­ing on the peo­ple to in­te­grate their love for the fam­ily with their love for the na­tion.

He Yaomin, vice-pres­i­dent of Ren­min Univer­sity of China, said that Xi has high­lighted the sig­nif­i­cance of fam­ily val­ues in cul­ti­vat­ing so­cial­ism’s core val­ues.

To im­ple­ment Xi’s im­por­tant in­struc­tions on fam­ily val­ues, Ren­min Univer­sity of China has es­tab­lished the coun­try’s first museum of fam­ily let­ters, he said, adding that the museum has played an im­por­tant role in pro­mot­ing pos­i­tive fam­ily val­ues.

Tian Xueli, deputy Party sec­re­tary of Liaon­ing Daily, said that as a Party-run news­pa­per, it has shoul­dered its re­spon­si­bil­ity in pro­mot­ing tra­di­tional Chi­nese cul­ture, in­clud­ing fam­ily val­ues.

“Gen­eral Sec­re­tary Xi Jin­ping has stressed that no mat­ter how the times change, we should al­ways re­spect fam­ily val­ues,” he said.

In Jan­uary, Liaon­ing Daily pub­lished a set of six books that in­clude nearly 200 let­ters from fam­ily mem­bers, such as from a son to a fa­ther or a hus­band to a wife, and more than 100 fam­ily sto­ries.

Through these let­ters, the books show the sig­nif­i­cance of fam­ily val­ues in the process of prac­tic­ing so­cial­ism’s core val­ues and the pass­ing on of tra­di­tional cul­ture from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion.

In his speech at the Sixth Ple­nary Ses­sion of the 18th CPC Cen­tral Com­mis­sion for Dis­ci­pline In­spec­tion in Oc­to­ber, Xi said some lead­ing of­fi­cials have been found en­cour­ag­ing their fam­ily mem­bers to ac­cept bribes and the chil­dren of many of­fi­cials have made il­le­gal gains by
