Pope Francis titled his seventh chapter of Amoris Laetitia “Towards a better education of children.”
We’ll take about a month to get through sections numbered 259 through 290. Today, the reasoning why assisting children into maturity deserves a whole chapter’s worth of discussion:
259. Parents always influence the moral development of their children, for better or for worse. It follows that they should take up this essential role and carry it out consciously, enthusiastically, reasonably and appropriately. Since the educational role of families is so important, and increasingly complex, I would like to discuss it in detail.
