In the final episode of Alexander Pushkin's story "The Stationmaster", the problem of repentance is posed.
Sin and repentance ... The eternal human problems raised in the "Book of Books" - the Bible. "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand, " it says. But not all people live according to Christian customs: they sin, and they forget about repentance, therefore this moral problem remains relevant.

These grown children, apparently, forgot that parents, except for a clean bed, bowls of soup, need warm words, mutual understanding and love of children born and raised by them ...
