A special role in the development of national interest issues and the problems of social life among the Polish diaspora of Upper Silesia in the second half of the nineteenth century was played by the journals, published in Polish, which were thematically profiled and, on the one hand, passed specialized knowledge to the readers and, on the other, advised how and in what way they could solve everyday problems. Included among these periodicals was a weekly magazine “Monika”, which throughout the whole period of its publication was solely dedicated to the Christian education of children. Specialized pedagogical guidelines provided in each issue, which were called “ten household commandments needed to educate children”, developed in parents, especially mothers, beliefs about the relationship between their religious Catholic faith and the ensuing educational responsibilities.
