Every Kid Should Know This

Every Kid Should Know This

The propaganda and informational posters in the Soviet state were a popular form of art and targeted different slices of society. You come to a factory where workers work and see the “Don’t steal from the factory!” or “Be careful with machinery!” posters around.

You go out on the streets – you see different sorts of posters. Then when you enter a school for kids you get to see posters too, now these ones are targeted towards children. So what did kids have to know according to the propaganda masters of the State? Here is what:

Every Kid Should Know This

“Every boy should know

Playing on the street is dangerous!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Become a worthy son of your Motherland”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Help the smaller ones without asking questions!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Learn to do everything yourself from an early age!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Love thy work! Everyone should be able to do something skillful with his hands!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“I will master this!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Don’t be a bully to small ones! The one who doesn’t bully looks so good!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Never do this!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Help your parents! We should help our mom together!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“We can do everything ourselves! We are helping our mom!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“You never lie!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Speak the truth! Honor your team!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Not even a drop of this!” (Bottle says “wine”)

The clock hands say “Day Schedule”: “You should value every minute, count all your time, don’t miss your schedule, the right schedule will help us all!”

Every Kid Should Know This

“Don’t be like this!”. This implies that you shouldn’t sit on the bus or other public transport if the elder people are standing. Pretty much an overlooked habit in some places of the world, to me at least.

Every Kid Should Know This

“Get all A’s” – or succeed in your study.

Do you think any (or maybe all?) of those might be of any use for the modern school kiddies?

  1. Nothing wrong with most of these messages over all.
    But it’s not really the states place to do this, the parents should be teaching their kids this.

    • Nothing wrong with any of these slogans. The state should do this. This is not just a family matter, this is important for society as a whole.

  2. This sort of thing is starting to show up in the U.S. On highways you’ll see messages on how to treat your fellow drivers and road workers. Its only a matter of time before the messages will shift to more targeted slogans.
