The Home Is the Most Significant Classroom

thoughts from: Family Gems

The Home Is the Most Significant Classroom

"Perhaps most significant of all classrooms is the classroom of the home.
It is in the home that we form our attitudes, our deeply held beliefs.
It is in the home that hope is fostered or destroyed.
Our homes are the laboratories of our lives.
What we do there determines the course of our lives when we leave home.
Dr. Stuart E. Rosenberg wrote in his book The Road to Confidence,
'Despite all new inventions and modern designs, fads and fetishes, no one has yet invented, or will ever invent, a satisfying substitute for one's own family.' "

Thomas S. Monson, "Precious Children--A Gift from God," Ensign, Nov. 1991, 68

It used to be that this was a no brainer statement. However, nowadays in a society that feels like you should drop your kid off at school and have them 'take care' of everything, this statement definitely needs to be made again and again.
