Transcript of Family Responsibilities

Focus on what is most important... FAMILY. Each person has an important place in his or her family. Through prophets the Lord has explained how fathers, mothers, and children should behave and feel toward one another. As husbands, wives, and children, we need to learn what the Lord expects us to do to fulfill our purpose as a family. If we all do our part, we will be united eternally. When you hear "family," what are some of the things you think of? "Fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners."
They should work together to provide for the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, and physical needs of the family. What are some of the responsibilities that husbands and wives share in raising their children? 1. Teach their children the gospel.
2. Teach their children to pray.
3. Teach their children to obey the Lord's commandments. How do parents teach their children?
How did your parents teach you? It is important to remember that each member of the family is a child of God. Parents should treat their children with love and respect, being firm but kind to them. What if your child makes wrong choices even after they have been taught what is right? How can husbands and wives support each other in their roles?
Where can you always turn to for support? "When we have sampled much and have wandered far and have seen how fleeting and sometimes superficial a lot of the world is, our gratitude grows for the privilege of being part of something we can count on--home and family and the loyalty of loved ones. We come to know what it means to be bound together by duty, by respect, by belonging. We learn that nothing can fully take the place of the blessed relationship of family life."

President Thomas S. Monson "Let us relish life as we live it, find joy in the journey and share our love with friends and family. One day, each of us will run out of tomorrows. Let us not put off what is most important."

President Thomas S. Monson "Inasmuch as the family unit is under attack in the world today, and many things long held sacred are ridiculed, we ask Thee, our Father, to make us equal to the challenges we face, that we may stand strong for truth and righteousness. May our homes be havens of peace, of love, and of spirituality."

President Thomas S. Monson
From the dedicatory prayer for the Gila Valley Arizona Temple What positive examples have you seen of mothers raising their children? Motherhood is the noblest calling.

President David O. McKay It is a sacred calling, a partnership with God in bringing His spirit children into the world. Bearing children is one of the greatest of all blessings. What are our responsibilities as children? A loving and happy family does not happen by accident. Each person in the family must do his or her part.
