Congratulations! You are a parent and God has entrusted the well-being of your children to you. He has called you to be the first and the most important person in life of your children. In Church language, that means that you are the ‘primary educator’.


So exactly, what is the job of a primary educator? There are three main duties of a primary educator.

First, create a family atmosphere animated with love and reverence for God and others so that each child becomes personally and spiritually well-rounded.


Secondly, develop a strong and lasting bond of trust with each child so that each one will become emotionally and socially mature.


Finally, set godly standards and expectations for each child so that each one will develop moral character.

We invite you to explore the Teaching the Way of Love website which is designed to help you become the best parent possible.
