'For most men and women expecting to become fathers and mothers, the formation of their child, its character, faculties, qualities and flaws all happen by chance - or by the will of God, which they have no very clear idea about. As they have, however, heard of the laws of heredity, they do expect a child to physically and morally resemble its parents, grandparents, an uncle or an aunt. But they don't think they can do anything to encourage or prevent this resemblance or generally contribute to the good physical, psychological and spiritual development of their child.
Well, that is where they are mistaken - parents can favourably influence the child that is to incarnate in their family.'
