An ideal family is where the father, mother and children live with love and respect for each other, resulting in a bright and cheerful home.

A father’s mission is to form and build strong character in his children and to protect his wife and children from harm.

A father and mother do the very best they know how, and then leave the rest in the hands of God.

A periodic family dialogue between parents and their children is advisable. It is a perfect forum to discuss their family vision, mission, family core virtues and values as well as simple house rules and family financial matter in a free-wheeling manner where everybody is encouraged to participate.

Parents should find time to talk to their children and listen to their concerns and problems.

Parents should lead by example by trying to live in accordance with their faith.

Attending Sunday Mass and sharing lunch together are  traditions that forge family unity.

Family bonding activities like picnics, reunions, get-togethers, playing together, watching a movie, dining-out, celebrating family milestones like birthdays, anniversaries, graduations become memorable moments to cherish.

A family that prays together stays together.

Don’t spoil your children. Let them struggle and experience disappointments. They will become confident and stronger individuals, not weaklings.

Form the values of your children at an early age, then give them wings so they can have their freedom to fly and live their own lives.
