“Don’t let yourselves be shaped by the world where you live, but rather, be transformed, through the renewal of your mind. You must discern the will of God: what is good, what pleases, what is perfect.”
Before we put Bianca in Woodrose, we made it clear to her that we have our own way of doing things in our family and our own set of rules which may be different with other families. It was important that she understands that what maybe the norm in some households, may not be in our own. It is very difficult to raise kids nowadays especially that the dynamics in certain families they are in close contact with are changing.
I guess as parents we should never get tired of teaching or reminding our children of the timeless family values and virtues we’ve learned as a child. This way, no matter how totally different the dictates of their own generation are from what the family upholds and practices, our children will not find themselves confused. Instead they would automatically decide and act based in what is good, what is pleasing, and what is perfect for God.
