Five Puritan Suggestions to Dads

Dads:
  1. Teach your children the faith
  2. Lead your family in family worship
  3. Take your family to church on the Lord's Day
  4. After church, make sure that your family understood the sermon, filling in the gaps
  5. Set an example of sober godliness at all times and in all matters

All of the above are from:
