Express and share your concerns about family values with the other adults responsible for raising the children. It is essential for the parents to agree on a set of values.

    i believe one of the most important and basic principles of bringing children is teaching them to embrace their parents’ belief systems. i am a christian and i am taught by God that whatever i teach my children as they are growing up, they will never lose those values in their adulthood irrespective of the life they choose to live. if you teach children righteuousness they will grow upupright and if you teach them violence expect them to be violent
