For I have known him, in order that he may command his children and his household after him, that they keep the way of the Lord, to do righteousness and justice, that the Lord may bring to Abraham what He has spoken to him.” – Genesis 18:19 (NKJV)
Children are the future of any society and the character of the children is the leading indicator of the future of the nation.

It is in the home that children learn right from wrong, a sense of justice, pick up habits, mannerisms, learn to read and write, learn to talk etc.
