Be sure to cultivate a deep respect for the sacrament of marriage within your children.

DIRECTIONS

From the start, your child should be taught to reverence marriage. If your child attends a wedding, or knows a couple being married, he is not too young to be told that marriage is a sacrament. He will sense the dignity and grandeur of the occasion from those about him. Tell him that you, his parents, were married in just such a ceremony.

It is important to stress that, though their marriage has been sanctified, parents may make mistakes. Children need to understand that, together, the family is striving to be good and to reach heaven.
