It is very important for fathers to take up the spiritual leadership in the home. There are several benefit the home and its members can benefit as a result of this. It will serve as model for the children to learn. It brings stability to the home as the family would be speaking with one voice. Also, the man would be fulfilling his role as the head of the home. The family would have a direction and the devil cannot come in to create havoc there.
I think that the parents so long as you are teaching your child right from wrong and keeping them on the right path that it’s okay. Obviously you don’t want your children do to bad things as so long as you are instilling in them good values then I don’t think that you will have a problem.
When it comes to spiritual leadership in a home, i think the father has a huge role to play. He is the leader of the house and a model in which the children and members of the family can emulate, if he performs his duties to the best of his abilities and with the support of God, nobody he leads shall go astray.
