My Daily Domestic Clips 10/03/2010 (a.m.)

  • tags: parenting college

    • Certainly, there are over-involved parents living vicariously through their kids
      experiences, but many more parents just wash their hands of involvement with
      their children when they go off to college. My judgment: far too many parents
      assume that their parenting role ends when college for their child begins. I do
      not agree that parents are superfluous. Nor do I think kids should be abandoned
      to flounder in a totally new environment where they are deluged with new
      worldviews and ideologies. Some students are suddenly cut loose from their
      anchors in an environment of total freedom without adequate preparation; they
      move out of a home where there are clear rules and expectations (which stabilize
      both their conduct and emotions) into a place where there are few rules or
      expectations for their behavior or conduct.



        1. Your child is beginning one of the most significant and challenging stages of
          his or her life. Perhaps for the first time, that child is on his or her own and
          it is a proverbial make-or-break situation. (Hopefully, you have spent the
          previous 18 years preparing them for this day - emotionally, psychologically,
          intellectually, and spiritually.) They need to know that you will continue to be
          there as a parent to provide support and/or guidance as they request
          it.


        2. Over the four years of college or university life, students will make many of
          the most important decisions of their lives. Wise parents will anticipate the
          challenges and temptations and prepare their children with the character and
          arguments that they need to avoid risky and destructive behavior; loving
          communication and wise counsel can help your child resist temptation and make
          good decisions.


        3. Over the next four years, your child will sit under the influence of a few
          professors who enjoy tearing down the moral and religious views of their
          students. For such profs, teaching is a game, and the intellectual seduction of
          their students is the conquest that makes their teaching challenging. Their
          agenda is to separate students from their parents, thereby, they hope, removing
          the influence of traditional, Judeo-Christian values. Wise parents will listen
          carefully and be ready to help counter such pernicious nonsense.

    • The angels in the life of the Church

      334 In the
      meantime, the whole life of the Church benefits from the mysterious and powerful
      help of angels.201

      335
      In her liturgy, the Church joins with the angels to adore the thrice-holy God.
      She invokes their assistance (in the funeral liturgy's In Paradisum deducant
      te angeli
      . . .["May the angels lead you into
      Paradise. . ."]). Moreover, in the "Cherubic Hymn" of the Byzantine
      Liturgy, she celebrates the memory of certain angels more particularly (St.
      Michael, St. Gabriel, St. Raphael, and the guardian angels).

      336
      From its beginning until death, human life is surrounded by their watchful care
      and intercession.202 "Beside each believer stands an angel as
      protector and shepherd leading him to life."203 Already here on earth
      the Christian life shares by faith in the blessed company of angels and men
      united in God.
