Summary/Abstract: Moral standards are arranged in a kind of whole which forms the scale of values. They set in order the environment, provide direction of actions and place a man in the surrounding world, which was also created by him. Selection of moral norms must be carried out according to certain principles which form a logical entirety. Only then, involving in social life becomes a foundation for creation of the unit. The person building the self-image of reality with simultaneous lack of support from their parents, state institutions, public life, spiritual or intellectual authorities, generally is unable to distinguish good things from bad things, the rules that should be followed from the rules that should be avoided. A confused young man is trying to save himself by building a “private ethics” in which his own environment easily helps him, providing a number of models of ethical individualism. However, according to immutable values only education can shape the young characters that will be able to remedy for all the signaled difficulties in distinguishing good from evil, and establishing a solid foundation that will help them build their own future.
