Little children are dependent upon their parents for everything. This includes more than just food, clothing and shelter. Children are also dependent upon their parents for how they view the world.  The way you live in front of children is the most powerful teaching tool that God gives you.  God designed families to demonstrate what it means to have a relationship with Him. If you love God, if you sincerely attempt to live your life by His Word, if you recognize that every moment is given to you so that you will glorify and honor God, then by example, you will teach your children these same truths.
