Motivated by love
The family could very well raise children with values and be motivated by love. Each child is a world in its own and shares a series of qualities and characteristics, some positive and some not. Within the family, it is possible to assume weaknesses because children know that their parents and siblings want them to be unique and valuable, persons with strengths and weaknesses.
This is the starting point where children pass obstacles and attain their aimed values.
To do it, we can rely on each child’s strengths. Parents must act in an educational way. Actions like such will set a familiar style on education. Consequently, all members will share and respect different criteria and behaviors.

Moral education also directs attention to manage affectivity favoring a generous disposition towards the good, which sometimes requires sacrifice and waivers to overcome selfishness. Having good feelings helps having a strong will to attain the good. Experiences and values are embedded strongly in a person.
Educate by teaching to strive each day for doing what one understands is what should be done: seize the time, take advantage of own personal abilities, attempt to overcome the defects of own personality, always explore to do more for the people who are around us, keep cordiality in all relationships, work, study and live the essence of good and for a well done job.
