Question: In the LDS, we have designated Monday night for Home Study. This is a time for a family to come together in the privacy of their home and share their spiritual growth. This can take many forms. here are a few... Fathers and mothers pray alongside their children, teaching them how to pray. Parents read scripture to their children and educate them. Fathers with the Melchezidek Priesthood can bless their children and wives in times of illness, or simply feeling unconnected with Heavenly Father or overwhelmed by life. Parents encourage their children to write in their personal journals, so they can learn the skill of writing remembrances. Some families have a special meal. During this time of family study, there is no TV/Radio/Computer or anything else that could be distracting. On a side note (of interest to Mormons), about 2 weeks after President McKay announced the revelations concerning Monday family home study, ABC announced that it was starting Monday Night Football.

I have a family night in my home and it has nothing to do with a bible....... We dont need an excuse to say that one night a week is only for each other......... We love and respect and value each other because we want too.... not because a mythical god tells us we have to!

I dont know about all of the other stuff you put in here but Jehovah"s Witnesses have many meetings a week. They are very organized and they also have family studies. No comment here on the Mormons though except they seem nice enough

I'm a Christian - we don't have a designated night - but I like the idea. I think we would probably like to make it Sunday night if we were to do it. It sounds like a great time for bonding and sharing and growth. :)

Your mother is absolutely right in that the USA is the most expensive place in the world for university studies. If you have no money, you need to look elsewhere. (Otherwise it's like saying "I want to buy a car, I have no money, but I want a Ferrari" - makes no sense; start with a Kia instead, then!) And no, you won't be getting any loans or other funding from the USA, you need to enquire with your home country's government in case they provide funding for studying abroad (I doubt it, but worth asking). As for whether your parents 'let' you study abroad, that's a bit trickier. If money was no problem, I would say that you're presumably an adult (or at least soon will be), it's your life, you can and must do what you think is right. But of course, if you don't have the funding in place and you're at all relying on your parents to bankroll you, then you obviously need to take their views into account - after all, you can't expect to go against their wishes, yet ask them to pay for it. Considering the money issue and your parents' resistance, I think you probably need to look closer to home. You could always go to the USA for your postgrad studies?
