"'Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one. You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.'"
~ Deuteronomy 6:4-9

Partnering with parents...this is a phrase we use a lot around here AND we mean it. God gives parents the responsibility for the education and discipleship of their children.
In opposition to this, right now, in our culture, there are those who are making the claim that parents should not even have a say in what the schools are teaching. The message in these schools is that educators and legislators know what is best for the children and parents need to recognize this.
A biblical worldview understands a deep link between parents and children and makes clear that parents are the ones ultimately responsible for their children. Led by God’s word, we are to be the stewards of our children’s lives.
The schools exist to serve parents not the other way around.
In the words of Deuteronomy 6, mothers and fathers are called to love God with everything we are and impress this upon our children, teaching them to do the same. In fact, one could argue that this is our primary responsibility as parents; not safety, not happiness, not success for our children, but shaping their loves such that they love God and love their neighbor.
But how do we do that? How do we pass on the faith to our children? How do we raise them to love God and love others?
