A 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 inconvenience.
Tolerant attitude towards people at all times was considered a true human virtue. The problems of education and upbringing of children are more pronounced at the breakthroughs in the development of society, as they come into contact with abrupt changes in public demands for man.

Tolerance is promoted by openness, knowledge, communication and freedom of conscience, thought and belief. The most effective means to prevent intolerance is to cultivate in young hearts a respectful attitude to the values and outlooks of other people, feelings of empathy, understanding of the motives of people's actions, the ability to cooperate and communicate with people of other views, attitudes, opinions, cultures. Modern society assumes the existence of tolerance, which should turn into an emerging model of relationships between people, countries, peoples. As a result, our country also needs the formation of a proper understanding of tolerance, the desire for this concept to become familiar in our everyday speech.
