Ethics and morals are taught in the home. Whether parents believe in "corporal punishment" or not, children need to be instilled with respect for adults. There have been many studies about the effect of absent fathers on the behavior of children. But mothers are the first teachers, and the most powerful method of teaching is through demonstration. What are children learning from their mothers about how to talk to other adults? What are women really teaching their children when they disrespect other women? What are they teaching children when they put down the children's fathers? American children get spankings, school suspensions and all kinds of punishment, yet they are the more disrespectful of adults than any other culture. The mother is the moral foundation of the society. Are mothers responsible when children are disrespectful to other adults? What should women do to correct the situation? Pastor Jean Lockett discusses her and her husbands family ministry and the common issues that women struggle with as they raise children.s
