The questions I would put to parents are these: “Do you seek to understand ‘where’ our children are in their journey? Where is their soul, do we really know? And above all, do we want to know?
(Amoris Laetitia 261)
For parents the real question is not where our children are physically, or whom they are with at any given time, but rather where they are existentially, where they stand in terms of their convictions, goals, desires and dreams. As a family we need to find opportunities to discuss important things, to cultivate a multitude of healthy ways to spend time and to encourage critical/right thinking in our children.
