Family Atmosphere

For Don Bosco and Mary Mazzarello a homely and family atmosphere always created a welcoming and warm atmosphere for the young people in their care. The educator and the young person relate to each other in a way that:

  • Expresses genuine interest
  • Shows a readiness to engage in an educative way in all areas in the life of the young person
  • Shows care and compassion
  • Is respectful and reasonable and aware of the good of all.

'Make yourself loved, not feared' became a Salesian maxim.
