Importance of Religion in Family Life

Sara

Religion is a basic aspect in any family’s success, providing spiritual support, bonding and even moral guidance to the family members. Children are well brought up if they are under care of a religiously firm family. This foundation does not only help the kids at young age, but also imparts life skills and impressive behavior which manifests in them even when they grow up.

Children in families that participate in religious activities together are more likely to report seeing expressions of love and affection between their parents. Two dimensions of family religious involvement–family participation in religious activities at least once per week and parental prayer more than once per day—were associated with greater expression of love or affection between the parents, as reported by their children.
