Can one still educate in chivalry?

Currently, any evidence of strength, generosity and vigor in male youth is submitted and criticized. The male has become soft for fear of showing his masculinity, which today is considered out of pace. This problem of men is a side effect that no one counted on.

Between 15 and 25 years old, men seem mentally eclipsed compared to women. It seems that they do not assume responsibilities or respond or connect properly. They seem distracted in frivolities, in completely secondary things that are insignificant and irrelevant.

At Instituto Real de San Luis we asked ourselves: how to educate our students so that they are true gentlemen in an environment and a society that, at times, limits and hinder them.

For this reason, we have focused on creating an educational model that develops habits and virtues: a continuous formation in values. Through differentiated we have developed them fully.

Of course, work at home is also very important. In order to live an atmosphere of trust, a living example of generosity and family unity is necessary, where an atmosphere of respect in the home is breathed.

Throughout the education of your little one, one of the biggest difficulties to make a person attentive and affable in coexistence-family or social-is to give importance to “being right”. The art of educating in chivalry also requires other requirements and a great challenge for your child.

Can one still educate in chivalry?

We think so. That’s why we share some key points of chivalry:

            Think about the taste of others whenever possible and not always on your own that he treats women with respect, as he would treat his mother.

            Give encouragement to the depressed, visit the sick.

Let him learn to listen twice as much as he speaks without shouting or insults.

Do not forget the importance of being cheerful, and smiling.

Always say the 3 magic words: please, thank you and sorry.

Be generous in doing favors.

Knowing how to identify and meet the needs of people.

Be kind to others.

Encourage him to be affectionate and compassionate with the little ones, generous and respectful with elderly, sympathetic to rivals, tolerant and patient with the weakest or strongest.

And you must understand this because, at the end of your life, it will have been each one of them. The virtuous gentleman, with a refined education and an integral life, is the one who thinks of other and therefore lives for others.
