What does a teacher, an educator need from a child? To be accurate, disciplined, diligent, dutiful, to study well and to be hard-working. To fulfill commissions and to be reliable‚Ä¶
Such children are called ‚Äúteacher‚Äôs authorized representative‚ÄĚ in their school. So Vitya is exactly like this. He appreciates his position very much, fulfills all commissions zealously. There is no use for other kids to compete with Victor.
It can hardly be said that Vitya doesn‚Äôt have his own opinion, but ‚Äúthe father‚Äôs‚ÄĚ authority is absolutely indisputable.
We‚Äôve seen such a scene: on a sports ground children are running, rolling, playing. Many of them are trying to draw our attention. A teacher from Vitya‚Äôs group proposed to line an area for playing hopscotch. Not just to line, but to make it long-lasting. How to do that? It is necessary to split cells with small grooves and to fill them up with light sand: this is the way to preserve ‚Äúthe net‚ÄĚ for a long time, and the limits will be clearly visible. Children rushed to help all together, jumping on the unfinished construction. But Vitya is not like this. He was in earnest about the task: he worked quickly, regularly, unsparingly, carrying the bucket with sand almost the same size as himself, but he also arranged his classmates, giving reasonable tasks ‚Ä¶
I tried to distract him, to talk. But he said categorically: ‚ÄúI‚Äôm not coming until I finish my job‚ÄĚ. And he didn‚Äôt agree later: evidently, he understood, that if a family for him can be found, he will have to leave ‚Äúthe father‚ÄĚ. His faithful heart didn‚Äôt like this idea ‚Ä¶
But we know, that a father is better than ‚Äúthe father‚ÄĚ, and a mother‚Äď is better than ‚Äúthe mother‚ÄĚ. It would be great for Vitya to understand this from his own experience, wouldn‚Äôt it?

Ways you can help include: planning and participating in excursions and trips for children; visiting a child in an orphanage; or helping purchase developmental toys, books, construction sets, and sports equipment.
