On Sundays, they make fascinating walks.Children ran forward again returned to his parents, to listen to the mother or father recite favorite poems, talk about what is happening in the world.For all its employment father found time for such family walks are both recreational and school knowledge of the world, talking to children about books, nature, politics.This father was Karl Marx, who was able to become a friend and a teacher of children.The moral world is his family's predestined future of all three daughters.Jenny Longuet, Laura Marx and Eleanor Marx-Aveling, who grew up in the house, where ever heard fiery speeches about light Communist ideals of goodness, justice and freedom for the working people all over the world, continued his father's work.Their names are known in the history of the revolutionary movement.

return to the family of Karl Marx.Since childhood, feeling the need, his daughter accustomed not to be discouraged, work respected.Later correspondence with Marx's work mother.
father was their idol.And at the same time - a friend.Fellow in games, conversations.His thoughts are often expressed in his letters to each other.Warmth, trust reigned in the house.Marx often told tales of wonderful daughters.The eldest of the girls - Jenny was fond of books.And 13 years is very much known from the history of Greece, on the constitution of Sparta, Solon's reforms, the battle of Thermopylae.
Very often the family Marx discussed political topics.Jenny, Laura, Eleanor is not just listening to these conversations - father taught them to think, able to explain everything.However, to celebrate victories, won by the proletariat.No major event is not passed by the prying eyes of girls.
youngest, Eleanor, in 1861, when the civil war between northern and southern states of America, decided that she needed help President Lincoln."I, - she writes, - it was unshakable conviction that the United States President Abraham Lincoln will not be able to do without my advice in military matters, and so I wrote him a long letter, that Moor was, of course, read and" attributeto the post office. "Many, many years later, he showed me these children's letters, which he retained, since they were really very funny. "
Marx's letter to his daughters a little witty, humor, everyday details abound.The girls turn to him in the same tone, which, however, does not diminish its authority.Children Moor styled father, Old Nick, the old man, and he also gave them all nicknames - Kakadu, Liliput, Tussy, Quo Quo and others.
complete understanding reached by Marx in the family, played by Do not hardly a major role in the fact that his children grew like-minded, committed to the same ideals.The atmosphere in the house, get into the spirit, friendship, empathy encouraged to not only relatives, friends, and people on the other side of the planet.The mentality, complete generosity big heart, able to respond to the joys and woes of the world, contains the secrets of wise parenting, just as natural as the continuation of the species.Together with his mother's milk the baby absorbs everything that a family lives.
Karl Marx used to say that children bring their parents.Is not it?
... - Mom, the ancient peoples was decided to treat first, to warm the traveler, then ask why he had come.Hello ?!
Here you can not help recalling the eve angry with a neighbor, often to you to call another friend, and paint strikes the face.
- You know, father, watched yesterday for builders who repair our house.I think if there is the conscience of the people?All anyhow ... Just to hurry.
And you confused mentally sorted out, if also admits in his work "anyhow".I do not want to look bad in front of his son, shake-esteem daughters.Because already meticulously following his speech, for fear that the child learns a harsh word or, even worse, it will cause his unflattering opinion of you, father.And revises its attitude towards books, nature, people.
Day by day, year by year our kids grow up.Become engineers, scientists, heads of state rank, commanders of ships ... It is often at this time we discover the truth of all that is laid in the child since childhood, manifested now as on the film, - outlined sharply.And it brings us joy or sorrow.
More B. Sukhomlinsky said: "The child - a mirror of the family;like a drop of water reflects the sun, so in children reflects the moral purity of the mother and father. "It reflects hard work, respect for others, honesty, citizenship.It reflected patriotism in judgments and actions.
snowstorm the evening was played in earnest.Vova and fell asleep under the howling wind, and Ivan Sergeyevich is not.
- Your Sorokin as Suvorov, the service from dawn to dusk - a faint smile, sympathized with his neighbor's wife.
Yekaterina answered, without embarrassment:
- No wonder the military too.Maybe at night the alarm to go off.The usual thing.
When finally returned to her husband, Yekaterina met him at the threshold:
- For Vovka neighbor look, I agreed, and we need to hurry to the hospital, I am something not for yourself.
Clarification was needed.Ivan Sergeyevich immediately understood everything - become due.
to district hospitals - two kilometers, no less.The road covered with snow.No cars, no people.Yekaterina seemed that now fall in the snow and will not move further.
- Maybe you suffer?- Ivan Sergeyevich suggested.
- What are you!I'm familiar.
Life really is not spoiled her.She grew up in a village near Kharkov.And the water dragged, and the furnace stoked.Then the girl went to the front.Do not just link the bullets getting better.One day before the start of hostilities suddenly broke off the phone.The commander gave thirty minutes to fix the damage.Katya - Sergeant Catherine Shapar - crawled along the line.Near the shells exploded, thundering cannonade."Five, ten, fifteen minutes," - whispered the girl.Suddenly the earth trembled, everything was shrouded in smoke.I slip into the funnel.How many minutes at its disposal?
Kate managed to find a break.Quickly bonded wire ends and - back.Just returned - the attack began.Communication with units was excellent.On the implementation of this task resembles the medal "For Service in Battle".
Under the bullets went, and then limp.The hospital is already very close.We still have a little patience.
Barely doctors took his wife, Ivan S. hurried home to my son.To his young son, who tomorrow will be the oldest child in the family.The boy sweetly snoring in bed.His father corrected him on a blanket, lay down himself, but for a long time could not sleep.I remembered as met with Kate at the front as the war in neighboring departments.He often told his son about the last days of the war.When it fell to Berlin, their division participated in the battles of the heavily fortified city of Breslau.Kate was on duty on the switch the night of May 9th.And suddenly solemn voice sounded in the headphones: "including everyone!It will be sent an important message »...
Kate jumped into the street.
- Victory!- Shouts.- Victory!The war is over!
She picked up ran out of the barracks, the soldiers began to pop up.A thin little girl flew like a feather.Ivan Sorokin caught it, dropped to the ground beside him.Affectionately looking into his eyes, said:
- That the world.Are you going to marry me?
Soon Katya was discharged.She went home to Ukraine, and behind it was a vacation, Ivan Sorokin and took his young wife for many years to distant garrisons.
... A little light Ivan Sergeyevich rushed to the hospital.The nurse showed through the decorated glass Frosty pattern small package - son.Ivan S., excitement, put his hand to his heart - thanks, they say, for a message.As soon about to leave, the nurse called again.Another parcel brought to the window.Yekaterina gave birth to twins.
As in folk tales say, grew from his father and mother of three sons, three heroes.Kids screamed at night, demanding to be fed, perepelenali, warmly wrapped up.Worries have Yekaterina increased threefold.They lived far from home, the grandmother was not there.Nursery and kindergarten children are not all housed.The apartment did not immediately got - a room at first shot.Ivan Sergeyevich tried to alleviate the difficulties of the wife of the nomadic life of the garrison, but the service took up too much time.And involuntarily six Vovk became chief assistant to the mother.
- Sonny, tell tale kids ...
- Son, a song they sing ...
- Son, shaking them until I'll make some lunch ...
sent as a Vovka for bread in the store.At home she did not notice that flew for three hours.I am realizing that his son is still there.Heart sank.After Vova just a child, even in the school still can not walk.On the streets of cars scurrying.The town, though not large, but not small - you can get lost.She asked a neighbor to see the twins, and she - in search.
Volodya found on the next street.Hang the bag with bread on the fence, he enthusiastically drove with the boys in football.The game was in full swing, excited childish voice rang out over the green front gardens.In Yekaterina not broke no word of reproach.Silently took the bag with bread, he hurried toward the house.Vovk overtook her:
- Mom, Mom!I accidentally.Mother, however, I do droplet played!You are angry?
- No, Little Johnny - sighed Yekaterina - I just forgot that you have a little.Thought has grown.It turns out, you're like brothers who have for my skirt cling.
Vovk, a proud, almost from the cradle, already white with anger.His eyes filled with tears.
- Grew I not small.Dad says I'm big.
- He does not know you went to buy bread.
- Oh, please, Mommy, do not tell him - pleading look in his eyes .-- Papa yesterday I tried on a military cap, promised to give, but now say that I am still young.
next winter Volodya went to school and got a treasured old father fur hat with an asterisk.Very proud of it.In such a cap, which admired by his peers from across the street, even more trying not to disappoint, justify Dad's trust.Before you learn to count and solve puzzles, captured another wisdom: used to notice when the mother is tired, when kids need his help.It has been a kind of school, which evolved, grew strong sense of duty and a sense of love.
Volodya had a habit to protect younger brothers, take care of them, to give them.This beneficial effect on his character.Brisk, mobile, with blond hair vortices, similar to each other like two peas in a pod, twins involuntarily attracted attention were the darlings of the military camp.And their family, too, of course, spoiled.Inexhaustible for all sorts of nonsense, leprosy, Sasha and Misha caused a lot of mother's anxiety.Sometimes Yekaterina reproached pranksters: - Vova at your age all he could, and you!A good hostess was Sergeant Katya Shapar.His love for medicine - once dreamed of becoming a doctor - is now applied at home: that Sasha had a sore throat, then Misha injure the leg.Only manage to treat.Always smooth, friendly with all, often repeated sons:
- Very I would like you to treat each other as my brother, your uncle, Sergei.
Yekaterina told them quite a chance encounter with Sergei at the front.Kate went into the army, when the Nazis came close to their native village Great Burluk.Often thought of his brother, who also fought from it have not received news.Suddenly one day in front of her braked green jeep, jumped out the guy in the shirt.
- Katya!- He cried, catching her in his arms.- Katya, darling, what are you doing here?
- at war, Seryozhenka.
- You ?!At war ?!
- And you're healthy you?It does not hurt?
- It was, my sister, everything.And in the tank burned, and drowned in the river, but, you see, - alive.Alive!Only here the doctors were not allowed more in the tank troops serve.On the jeep planted.
- do not know about our personal?
both become sad: whatever my father and mother, if alive?
When the village was released, the commander allowed Kate to visit his parents.That soon will seem little white cottage, green gardens.But what is it?Black chimneys in the middle of the bare steppe.The gray-haired old man is building a shed in the place where the hut stood before them ... Looking closely, shivered: really?Dropping to the ground kitbag.I asked a hoarse with emotion:
- take a soldier into the house?
- Take a take - just where?German hut burned down - slowly turned to her old man.- Katya, Katya!My daughter ... My mother, Katya arrived!
Fortunately mingled a lot of grief.Kate heard about the death of loved ones, of the sufferings endured by their parents.I give them rations - and his own, and those who generously shared with her girlfriend, a telephone operator.He comforted by the news about Sergei.The hard goodbye, the next day went to catch up with her.
Now Yekaterina sometimes wondered what bound them children, such strong bonds with his father and mother?Why do they always understand each other?Katya sorry mother, tried to help her.Brother enjoyed working with his father.Yekaterina sometimes seemed that the guys today, in excess of the benefits provided by all for a happy childhood, lose something very important."Rights Vanya - internally agreed with her husband - it is necessary to constantly take care of the spiritual and moral formation of our boys."
One evening Ivan Sergeyevich went home gloomy.Silently sat for dinner.Guys alerted - usually the father liked to talk to them about how the day went.After eating, Volodya said:
- Imagine, we wound up in a house thief.
My son even eyes widened from such news.
- Yes, yes, do not be surprised.You do not look at me, it is better to ask them - nodded toward the twins.
Those with no less amazement staring at his father.
- Yeah, do not understand what it was about?And who is the brand of the album Petit Skvortsov took?
- So he we have two brands for all robbed!- Misha yelled.- As a highwayman!
- He's a robber and you robber.
shame it was to hear such words.Greater insult than you can imagine.Mother, ready - children are well seen it - to give anyone the shirt off, changed countenance, sad, sad, began to wash the dishes in silence.They confer the guys and asked Volodya:
- Take Pete mark.
- themselves have done themselves and disentangle.I shame because you do not want to - flatly refused brother.
Do nothing - the twins returned the brand owner and even gave a second.
Another time Ivan S. noticed that the children are not very polite with adults.Upon entering the apartment, as if casually spoke with Yekaterina:
- I go I'm home, and meet me at full speed flying Dima Gladkov son of the captain.Just down I knocked.I caught him by the elbow.He immediately retorted: "What was missing?" Oh, I think, a poor captain smoothly!If you know he will burn with shame.Lovely commander skillfully brings soldiers, and his son dishonors the whole town.My guys, I hope this yourself would never allow.
twins in unison:
- We are not rude captain, when he caught us.
- you ?!
downcast.Themselves issued.Then, interrupting each other, we laid out that they had a similar story to the captain.We do not want to be impertinent, but it happened.
mother sadly murmured:
- Everyone knows that our father is an officer, soldier.Now people no longer respect him.Because of you ...
- And a star was asked to cap - slightly rebuked Ivan Sergeyevich.
It is better to be criticized was worth than a bitter reproach to throw "the Father because you cease to respect."Since then, the boys from one harsh word not heard.
caused a lot of trouble twins teachers.Realizing that school uniforms are almost not distinguish swapped his desk, responsible for each other lessons.And one day, Ivan Sergeyevich invited to the director.
- One of the twins pulled lesson.
- Who exactly?- Asked Ivan Sergeyevich.
- I'm afraid to make a mistake ...
- Maybe both?
- No, the other sat quieter water below the grass.
- So who is punished?
After some time, a physical education teacher complained:
- I can not imagine any of them for two jumps, one of the two runs?
