Introduction: All children need a roof to keep out the rain, walls to shelter them from the wind, a hearth to drive away the cold. Those are the basics, but they are not enough. Children also need love, order, laughter, and at least one adult who would do just about anything for them. And because children are not born knowing the difference between right and wrong, they need a place where they can begin to develop a moral sense. They need people to guide them toward what is right and good. Home is that place. Families are those people. The stories families share can be important moral influences too--and that is the reason for this book. All these selections center around home or family life. They provide a good way for adults and children to talk about beliefs they hold dear. They are good tools for reinforcing the vital lessons all parents must teach. Today many parents say it has gotten harder to teach those lessons. Mothers and fathers find themselves competing with opposing messages from popular culture. This book is an ally that can help children realize the importance of family.
