The Preparatory Influence of the Home

Of all human institutions none is more vital to a progressive and enduring society than the home. It is in the sanctuary of home that parents may share with their children, and with each other, the best of which they are capable. It is in the home that children may be helped to form dependable concepts of right and wrong, to learn the value of moral and spiritual ideals and put them into practice in their daily lives.

Our Leader, Mary Baker Eddy, writes in the Christian Science textbook, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures" (p. 62), "The entire education of children should be such as to form habits of obedience to the moral and spiritual law, with which the child can meet and master the belief in so-called physical laws, a belief which breeds disease."
