This is a letter to our friends –

Encouraging young parents

“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” [Proverbs 22:6]

Mom, dad, have you thought about what sort of grown-up you want yours to be? Noah Webster, the father of American education, had some thoughts about it.

EDUC̵A´TION, n. [L. educatio.] The bringing up, as of a child; instruction; formation of manners. Education comprehends all that series of instruction and discipline which is intended to enlighten the understanding, correct the temper, and form the manners and habits of youth, and fit them for usefulness in their future stations. To give children a good education in manners, arts and science, is important; to give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties. [Webster’s 1828 Dictionary]

“But,” you say, “I am not qualified to teach my child all that he needs to learn,” I respond, “Who said so?” If s/he can learn it why can’t you? What better way to bond?.

Why not sit down and make a list of the things s/he needs to know next. There is a world of help out there, anxious to assist home-schoolers. I suggest www.FACE.net to begin with.

Next, you say, “There is no way I can work a job and still have time to teach.” STOP – think about it. Is that really true, or are you saying, “I don’t want to make the necessary sacrifices to train up my child?” S/he is your responsibility. S/he will grow up with the value system (character) s/he is taught – yours or someone else’s

“To give them a religious education is indispensable; and an immense responsibility rests on parents and guardians who neglect these duties.”
