It seems that most families have bought into a set of plans that says this:
1. The school system will educate my child…
2. The Church will make my child spiritual…
3. We the parent/parents will provide food,clothing, and shelter.
This is a recipe for disaster. It is not the sole responsibility of the school or the Church to educate and train your children. The school system will never be successful if the parents are not involved. The primary responsibility for the spiritual training of children rests with parents. This is laid out in Deuteronomy 6.
1. Show Them
Deuteronomy 6:1-5 (NKJV)

3. Warn Them

Warn them of the dangers in life.
4. Answer Them
