Education begins in the family. Family education is a process that directly affects the development of the society and the country and determines the future of the child. Today, the family cannot fully fulfill its historical function. Moral values in the family are a set of beliefs, principles and traditions that are passed down from generation to generation. Preparing children for life is the main purpose of the family system.The Kyrgyz have used proverbs as an empirical experience of the people in the traditional education process. For this reason, they start educating children by verbally appealing to their feelings from the first year with the words "Adep chief til/The head of morality is language". In the traditional Kyrgyz family system, raising children begins with the choice of a spouse. The fact of "knowing the seven ancestors/genealogy" plays a special role here. The background and upbringing of prospective parents affect the health, upbringing and morals of future generations. The Kyrgyz express it this way: "Whatever a child sees in kindergarten, he gets it." Parents have a special place and role in teaching moral values to children. Boys and girls were taught different moral values according to their age. Boys are brought up with the concept of "valiant", and girls with the understanding that "daughter is forbidden from forty houses". This article examines the adoption of moral values in the Kyrgyz family tradition. The study aims to guide today's parents in raising their children with a theoretical approach.
