Faith-based parenting In our turbulent culture may be the single most important choice parents can make to help their children and adolescents learn the core skills of holiness, virtue, conscience, and character development.
Parents often feel they do not possess the skills necessary to teach holiness, virtue, conscience, and character to their children and adolescents. This may be partially due to not learning these concepts themselves in their own childhood and adolescence, or to mistakes they made during that time of life. They do not want to be hypocritical and teach something they themselves were not taught or did not know how important the concepts were to their own lives.
That simply does not excuse parents from teaching these concepts to their children and adolescents. The world we are living in today is so pervasive and insidious that it sneaks up on our children and adolescents through t with almost no one noticing, until it's too late. Don't let that be the case with your children and adolescents.
YOU are the primary educator of holiness, virtue, conscience, and character for your children and you will do this most effectively through the example you set. Your teaching will be important, and the way you live and provide a good example of the concepts you teach, will offer the lasting lessons we want our children and adolescents to carry with them through life.
YOU are your child's and adolescents' most important moral teacher. Please do not leave this critical responsibility to chance, or worse, to this immoral culture.
Integrating Catholic Thought Throughout the Home is a program designed to help Catholic parents and Catholic Homeschool parents talk with their children and adolescents about how to live a holy and virtuous life. You will be guided to help your children and adolescents understand and integrate the important concepts of holiness, virtue, conscience, and character development into their everyday interactions with friends, classmates, sports' teams, and any extra-curricular setting in which they find themselves.
