The experience during their childhood is a very important factor in the next development phase of children’s life. One of the most significant forms of the experience is parental exemplary, an influential means of faith and moral education for children. Proper parental exemplary will make children responsible, possess good attitude and healthy social relationships, and have a good religiosity. God commands parents to educate their children to know and love Him. This indicates that parents—the leaders in the family—should carry out God’ mandate commanding them to be the first and primary educator for their children. The education provided by parents is through verbal teachings and exemplary through real daily activities. Only parents who know God and who keep closely associating with Him through prayer and reading the Bible will be resilient and able to educate their children on the right path and in the will of God. Every parent is obligated to train their children in the womb. Childhood is an important period for imparting integral education.
