He also wants them to be good examples to their children in their faith, and life.The goal of a Christian upbringing is to enable children to grow into mature, responsible and independent adults, who believe God’s Word and live in accordance with it, who respect their country’s rightful laws, good order and good habits.

Eph. 6:4: Ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath, but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.
