Since we're quoting Adams

The foundations of national morality must be laid in private families. In vain are schools academies and universities instituted if loose principles and licentious habits are impressed upon children in their earliest years The mothers are the earliest and most important instructors of youth The vices and examples of the parents cannot be concealed from the children How is it possible that children can have any just sense of the sacred obligations of morality or religion if from their earliest infancy they learn that their mothers live in habitual infidelity to then fathers and their fathers in as constant infidelity to their mothers
