Prayer of a Father or Mother

Father of mankind, you have given me these children, and entrusted them to my charge, to bring them up for you and to prepare them for everlasting life.

Help me with your heavenly grace to fulfill this sacred duty.

Teach me what to give, and what to withhold; when to reprove and when to forbear.

Make me gentle, yet firm; considerate and watchful. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
