Benedict XVI:
"Families: M
ay you be communities in which one learns to know and love the Lord more and more, communities in which each enriches the other in order to live a truly adult faith."
-II Sunday Lent, 2012

...Education needs settings. Among these, pride of place goes to the family, based on the marriage of a man and a woman. This is not a simple social convention, but rather the fundamental cell of every society. Consequently, policies which undermine the family threaten human dignity and the future of humanity itself. -Benedict XVI Full text

Our community (L.C.) does not have rules on how to raise children since that is the responsibility of the parents. Parents may have different approaches. Their decisions, however, should not be arbitrary. They need formation on the teaching of the Church and to PRAYERFULLY discern God's will. It is an ongoing process of transformation and growth in holiness. The community helps not by telling them what to do but by helping them grow in union with the Lord. He will tell them what to do. In that context parents share their views, encourage and support each other.
