Mark Gordon on Families & Children
Culture has lost track of old fashioned American values
Every day that I spent raising my children, I witnessed how hard it can be to parent in today's world. Daily, children are assaulted with messages from a culture which has lost track of old fashioned American values.
Luckily for my daughters, we lived in Wyoming, a state which puts great value on families and children [including] parents and grandparents who hold community service and kids above all else. For my children this made all the difference.
I understand the struggle parents go through to raise their kids, and I will uphold the values that keep families strong, allowing them to raise children to be happy, productive committed citizens and leaders.
Values are best taught by loving parents, institutions of faith, and mentors, not pamphlets, regulations, or decrees. Family decisions should be made around the kitchen table, not conference tables in Washington.
