Summary/Abstract: Manifestation of religious values in the family. To say that family is an important factor of children education is a truism. Too often, when it comes to religious education in the family we tend to look at things superficially or even to eliminate essential items which are disturbing for the spiritual well-being of the parents who tend to place full responsibility on this key dimension of education only on schools and church. In the research we conducted we have proposed to identify not only the share of religious education that comes from parents toward children, but also how children become missionaries in their family, by applying knowledge learned in religious discipline. In the research were involved 336 students in grades IX - XII of three high schools in Alba Iulia. The research has proposed to test the following hypothesis: the religious life of the family is built using models of religiosity, which can come both from parents to children and from children to parents, especially in the context of the presence of religion as a subject matter in schools. Student responses to the 10 items of the administered survey highlight several aspects of how religious values are manifested in the family.
