Here are some questions that adults should be able to answer properly before marrying and raising a family.

DIRECTIONS

If there were application blanks for potential parents to fill out before embarking on their lifelong teaching career, what questions should we expect to find?

The requirements for Christian parenthood might read as follows: Do you have faith in God? Do you understand the meaning of the sacrament of Matrimony? the meaning of love? Do you know that at the time you were married you received tremendous graces for your wedded life and that you may draw on these graces every day? Do you try to know and love God, and will you try to teach your children to believe in Him, hope in Him, and love Him? Do you make an honest attempt to carry out the will of God in all things? Will you always have room for Him in your heart and in your home?

Quiz yourselves, parents, and if you can answer yes to these questions, then consider yourselves prepared to be home teachers of the best quality.
