Tolerant person. This expression, translated from Latin, means "patient person." This concept is a sociological term that denotes understanding, acceptance and tolerance for a different way of behavior, life, feelings, customs, ideas, beliefs, opinions without any feeling of inconvenience.
Many cultures equate "tolerance" with mere "tolerance". However, unlike a simply patient person, a tolerant person is ready to favorably accept and recognize the behavior, views and beliefs of other people that differ from their own. And even in the case when other people's beliefs or views are not approved by you and are not shared.
Tolerant attitude towards people at all times was considered a true human virtue. The problems of teaching and raising children are more pronounced at the turning points in the development of society, as they come into contact with drastic changes in social requirements for a person. A tolerant person is a person who respects, accepts and correctly understands the rich diversity of cultures of the world in which we live, our self-expression and ways of expressing human individuality.Tolerance is promoted by openness, knowledge, communication and freedom of conscience, thoughts and beliefs. The most effective way to prevent intolerance is to cultivate in young hearts a respectful attitude towards the values and worldviews of other people, a sense of empathy, an understanding of the motives of people's actions, the ability to cooperate and communicate with people of different views, orientations, opinions, cultures. Modern society presupposes the existence of tolerance, which should turn into an emerging model of relationships between people, countries, peoples. As a result, our country also needs to form a correct understanding of tolerance, striving for this concept to become familiar in our everyday speech. This will happen only when the concept of "tolerant person" is firmly established in the vocabulary of school teachers.
