-Knowing the right thing, having the courage to do something about it!
-Encouragement is a way to help the family situation in perspective.

"Every child is entitled to grow up in a home where there is a warm & secure companionship, where there is love in the family relationship, where appreciation for one another is taught & exemplified and where God is acknowledged and His peace and blessing invoked before the family altar." -Gordon B. Hinckley.
