What characterizes the Christian family? The Puritans saw the family as a place for godliness and its development. This conviction was based on their understanding of the place of children in the family, the exercise of authority, principles of raising children, and the importance of parental involvement.
From Deuteronomy 6:6-7 this article explains that child-rearing is best achieved through the working together of family, church, and school. The author explains how the three work together with the family as a foundation for raising children.
