In the family, religious values should be proposed from childhood, to be cultivated in childhood, to be rethought in adolescence, so that the subject integrates them into his culture. The family should have the duty to offer young people an understanding of the religious problems arising in their conscience and implicit in their culture.
While young people should have the right to know the various religious answers to the great questions of existence. To discuss it, to be helped to protect themselves from the stereotypes of the world of young people and from common conceptions in vogue.
Educating in religious values in the family
Family education in religious values also passes through affection, the warmth of hospitality, exclusive feelings of the F. This is the main group that is most capable of offering an intimately human and positive environment in which to experience. In the family, religious values are shared and captured effectively in an atmosphere of closeness, trust, and love.
And it is precisely through this positive experience that religious sensitivity and appropriate behavior are rooted in the members of the family. Communication is therefore fundamental in the f that wants to transmit a certain type of religious values and that aspires to live their reality in accordance with the needs of their faith.
What is important is sharing in the family, communicating with others, passing from a more individualistic faith to a shared faith. More and more frequent is the fact that in the family someone declares himself a non-believer, and then it can be a stimulus to confront oneself without adopting defeatist or pessimistic attitudes. Educating in religious values in the family means sharing, understanding, experience, awareness.
