In the fourth commandment of God which is: ""Honor thy father and thy mother,"" is the link between the first three, which relate to our duties to God, and the last six, which relate to our duties as neighbors. From this commandment follows this truth: Parents who honor God always find it easy to train the children to honor them, the parents; children who honor parents always find it easy to honor the Heavenly Father. ~Fulton Sheen Children and Parents shines light on the greatest moral crisis of our times: the breakdown of the family. With his characteristic humor, candor and zeal for the faith, Archbishop Sheen diagnoses the problem in our culture and how they manifest in families and in relationships with young people, and provides practial insight for navigating the seemingly overwhelming task of raising and develping morally and spiritually mature youth. Writing ahead of his time, he offers advice to the modern family on topics such from discipline and obedience to chastity, sex and love, with a special emphasis on teenagers and their quest for identity. Sheen masterfully reveals the challenging reality praents face in raising children and encourages them to learn from Christ and to be ""shepherds who lead their sheep...showing them the way.""
