– Zhanar Beissenbekovna, what is the mother's mission?
– Motherhood is a great mission of a woman. A mother finds herself in selfless love dedicated to children. Children are the most precious to her. Mother's happiness is the happiness of her children. She can be strict, demanding, because she feels a great responsibility for them, wishes them well. Mother is the child’s first teacher and friend, the closest and faithful one.
– What work is being done to understand the importance of the family in society?
– We must preserve our traditions and spiritual culture. The basis of everything are laid in the family, parents are more responsible for the child upbringing than society. Now we see a large number of orphans in Kazakhstan, including our region. But leaving children is unusual for traditional order. Children are particularly vulnerable now, and we continue to work with orphanages, children's homes, so that every child feels protected.
We are facing difficult tasks, a lot of work is being done, and there is still much to be done. However, we can say with confidence that the work carried out every year gives more and more effective results.
