The Spiritual Head

It Is Written, Ephesians 5:23, for the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the savior of the body.
The Bible does not make men better than women.  This verse and 10 verses after it, list demands Christ puts on husbands.  Christ compares husbands to the family, as Christ Himself relates to the church.
Many families these days do not have a spiritual head.  This verse does not mean that if the husband doesn't take his responsibility, that the wife should just sit back and ignore what is going on.
The husband is supposed to keep his family going in the way of the Word, and a Godly way.  He must set an example for his children by the way he acts, not just by what he says.  Parents should teach their children a value system in life, that puts God first.
God loves all of his children unconditionally.  He wants all of them to be with Him for eternity.  Since He is not on earth, He made us His eyes, ears, hands, feet, and especially His heart.  He commands parents, especially fathers, to take care of and guide the family to Him.  We are responsible, and will be held accountable.
One last point.  In teaching our children about God, we should do it in a loving way, not by smothering them, or beating them over the head.  Also, when they are very young, take some time every evening and read to them from a children's Bible.  There are many good Bible stories that will keep them interested, and at the same time it will introduce them to Jesus.   Their future depends on you following what Jesus says.  Have a blessed day.  Praise the Lord!
Remember Jesus Loves You
Prayer of Salvation
Lord Jesus, I thank you for what you did on the cross for me.  Your blood washed away all my sins, by your stripes I was healed, your death and resurrection brought me salvation.  Please forgive my sins, and come into my heart as my personal Savior.
Thank You Lord
