“The Christian communities are called to offer support to the educational mission of families, and they do so first of all with the light of the Word of God.”

This is so important in family life … the education of our youngest in our family … our children. If the foundations of family life are rock solid based on traditional family values, then our children will face the world as good, strong, healthy citizens of society.

“Today, dear Brothers and Sisters, I wish to welcome you because I have seen so many families among you. Good morning to all the families! We continue to reflect on the family. Today we pause to reflect on an essential characteristic of the family, namely, its natural vocation to educate the children so that they grow in responsibility for themselves and for others. What we heard from the Apostle Paul at the beginning is so beautiful: “Children, obey your parents in everything, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers, do not exasperate your children, lest they become discouraged” (Colossians 3:20-21). This is a wise rule: the child is educated to listen to his parents and to obey his parents who must not command in a bad way, lest they discourage the children. The children, in fact, must grow without being discouraged, step by step. If you parents say to the children: “Let’s go up that flight of steps” and you take them by the hand and step by step you make them go up, things will go well. But if you say: ”Go up! – ‘But I can’t” – “Go!” this is called exasperating the children, asking the children to do what they are not capable of doing. Therefore, the relation between parents and children must be one of wisdom, of very great balance. Children, obey your parents, this pleases God. And you, parents, do not exasperate your children, asking them to do things they cannot do. And this must be done so that the children grow in responsibility for themselves and for others.

The family has never been under more threat than in these present times.  Increase in divorce, children’s lives dictated by the courts, confused, leaving home, drugs, alcoholism and gambling causing rifts in families.  Where do we find hope for the future among this confusion?  There is hope always in Christ – He is the Light that shines in the darkness.

I have just discovered a great website through Twitter – http://www.foryourmarriage.org/home.asp.  It has great resources for family values.
