August 12.   Thandi, one of the catechists, asked of the parents, or whoever was responsible for parenting the children, which of them reads to their children, or teaches them what is right and wrong. Reading a variety of stories to children and having family faith sharing time are great forms of imparting values.   In the end they decided that everyone has different ways but within a family there needs to be unity about discipline. 

Reflect, share, act. Scripture These words which I command you this day shall be upon your heart and you shall teach them diligently to your children and shall talk of them when you sit in your house and when you walk by the way.  Deut 6:4-13  Pope Francis:  “Parents” always influence the moral development of their children, for better or for worse.  It follows that they should take up this essential role and carry it out consciously, enthusiastically, reasonably and appropriately.
