Sources of Values
 
 
Values are learnt right from the childhood. They are taught by mother when she guides the child in several ways like “you go to bed early”, “you should wear clean clothes”, “you should achieve first rank” and things like that. Early ideas of what is right and wrong were probably formulated from the views expressed by the parents. As one grows, there is a likelihood of getting exposed to other value systems and be induced by them. We derive the values from the people we love or respect like our parents, teachers, friends, and other famous celebrities in movies, sports, business, and politics. Out of our admiration for them, we are likely to emulate them by imbibing their values also.
 
You may remember that in our culture itself, certain values have been developed over time and they are continuously reinforced. Peace, cooperation, harmony, equity, and de¬mocracy are the desirable societal values nurtured in our culture.
It is interesting to know that values are relatively stable and enduring. This is because of the way in which they are originally learned. In childhood, you are told that a certain behavior is always desirable or always undesirable. You are told, for example, that you should be honest and truthful. It is this absolute learning of values which ensures their stability and endurance. You may also note that values of an individual do change, but change very slowly. The process of questioning our values may lead to change in the existing values system.
