Sons and daughters need to be taught how to live for a purpose larger than themselves (faith in and love for God), how to distinguish right from wrong (truth and morality), how to incorporate positive values into their lives (knowledge and discipline), and how to stand courageously against the negative values that bring harm to themselves and others (brotherly love and community). To do so requires the strategic use of time, that commodity which ever escapes until parents intentionally capture and employ it.
