To whom does your child belong? Your child belongs to God and was created for the supreme purpose of eternal happiness with Him in heaven. So whose standards do you follow in order to responsibly raise and educate your child? Society's? The state's? Or God's?
What are God's standards? We must look to Scripture and to the Church to find God's rules governing parental obligations to their children. We do not look to state standards, federal guidelines, neighborhood fads, or the principal of the local public school. We do not look to the professors at the teacher colleges, to the public universities, or to the school psychologist. We do not look to other children, television, or to the football coach. We look to God. How are we then to know what God commands us to do? We know what God expects of us through the magisterium of His Church.
