Children and Parenting

As a community of faith, the Family International is committed to promoting the well-being of children and their need for quality care, education, and supervision. We promote the importance of children’s development in a healthy, happy, loving, safe, caring environment where their needs—physical, spiritual, intellectual, educational, and emotional—are amply met. We believe that every child should have the opportunity to grow up to become a well-adjusted adult with a foundation in faith and good ethics, having received an education that enables him or her to be competent in life and to contribute positively to society.

The Bible states that "children are a heritage from the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is a reward" (Psalm 127:3). It is our belief that sharing God’s love and Word with children can help to empower them to reach their potential as the world’s hope for the future. We believe that every child deserves a bright future—one of hope and opportunity.
