New Zealand -- Educating by Example
“Chart your child’s course” is the title of a series of seminars that took place in May in the cities of Auckland, Hamilton and Wellington, sponsored by the Family Enrichment Association of New Zealand. The principal speaker, Andrew Mullins, stressed the role of parents as educators through their good example. He also discussed practical ways of helping younger children in their interaction with the media and the new technologies. Each of the courses was limited to a maximum of 25 married couples. The same speaker gave another series of three lectures at the parish of St. Thomas More in Mount Manguani, in the northern part of the country, with an audience of about a hundred people.
