The family was intended to be the relational context in which children are encouraged and instructed in the development of character, virtue, knowledge, and wisdom. One of the central messages in these nine chapters that introduce the maxims beginning in chapter 10 is that we can learn and live, not just live and learn. These are principles and precepts that have been hammered out long before us, and we do well to build upon this foundation of received knowledge and insight instead of reinventing the wheel ourselves. Each generation has the responsibility to impart these truths to the next.
