Parents are obliged to educate their children for God and for eternal salvation. As they are born in original sin and liable to inordinate passions they must be directed by their parents towards good and brought under the saving influence of the Church and its means of salvation. Teachers and educators are the representatives or at least the assistants of parents. Hence they, too, must counteract in the child the twofold evil which clings to it, i.e.,ignorance and propensity to evil. Parents are also bound to provide for the temporal welfare of their children, for having begotten them they must continue to nourish them, and to develop their faculties and powers to fit them to provide for themselves.
