It is important to impress on your children the importance of being careful about who they give their personal information . By looking at the background of institutions they can get a better grasp of who they should trust. The bible tells us that we are to choose good company and not be deceived by those who we go into business with.
1 Corinthians 15:33 Do not be deceived: “Bad company ruins good morals.”
