Abstract

Behavioral modification is understood as a complex basic process of change. At the place of engraved (indifference or faulty) behavior comes conscious health behavior. Healthy way of life is a dynamic characteristic. Protection against diseases implies knowledge and will; self-interest initiative, own participation, discipline. Health consciousness must be linked with directly responsible action. Children nd juveniles acquire the ability for a life-fit independence in thinking and acting above all in the closed social environment of the family as the smallest unit with personality forming group public. This home education process requires harmonization with the everyday school life and the life outside school
