Home Is an Ideal Place for Teaching and Learning

“In the home it’s more intimate and better and easier and less formal, and parents are teaching by example. Parents also teach some things that are kind of painful to kids when they ask ‘why,’ and all the parents can say is ‘because’—because they don’t know why, they just know it isn’t the thing to do, and they teach them obedience so that they will know and understand. And at home there’s that powerful bond of love between parent and child that you won’t let go until you get it taught.”

Boyd K. Packer, “Principles of Teaching and Learning,” Ensign, June 2007, 86–87
