  2. UNITY FOUNDATION
    Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, which ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; as the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore. (Psalms 133:1-3 KJV)
    — Destiny of a Child is in the Unity of the parents
    — When you stand together, you can withstand anything.

  4. TRAINING FOUNDATION
    Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6 KJV)
    — Training of a Child is not a Biblical suggestion, but Scriptural injunction.
    — If you don’t train them when they are young, they will trouble you when you are old.
    — Training involves deliberately moulding their lives the way you want them to be.
    — It involves shaping characters, habits, changing manners, developing self control.
