tenderness is never extinguished. The couple must seek harmony, joy, sharing, respect, recognition for one another, and the beauty in one’s environment; each one is in protection and is attentive to the other. Their lives together must be their creation and expression of the art of living.
Parents give their children continuous love and attention. They have a karmic responsibility for the repercussions of their actions, and the choices they will make for their children up to the age of 7 years. Then they will guide them with respect until he or she comes of age. It is important to be a good mother and a good father, that is to say to instill in them the rules of good conduct and give them the structures that will be the basis of security for their entire life. Teach them the respect and the recognition of others and all the universal laws of the Order so that they are a beacon of consciousness for their adult life. Parents are involved in the development of the gifts of each child regardless of the field. Parents are examples for their children. Their listening is permanent. Discussions without arguments and a search for family harmony are the most beautiful gifts to the child. Life should be joyful, educational, warm, where everyone can express themselves, share, and collaborate. Parents engage themselves to give their child spirituality, a religious education (if they desire) and above all recognition of the Divine in everything.

As parents raise their children and are involved, the children must return later to care for their parents; as grandparents care for their grandchildren, they must return this care to them.

The Order requests that we be attentive and loving with all elderly people around us and that we provide assistance if needed.
