As the core of our traditional ethics and morals, filial piety is known as the foundation of ethics and morality and the first of the codes of conduct. Confucianism believes that filial piety is the foundation of human cultivation, and that fraternity, friendship, loyalty and benevolence all extend from filial piety. Family virtue education is an important element of moral education in ideological and political education, and the foundation of social education. Studying the idea of filial piety in the Analects and using family virtue education to promote the culture of filial piety is conducive to solving the current problems of family education in society and promoting the building of a harmonious socialist societyet.
