Teaching The Children

"If you were going to teach your children three great truths that you would want them to remember, what would they be? Helaman asked his sons Lehi and Nephi to remember three great truths 'that ye may do these things to lay up for yourselves a treasure in heaven, . . . that ye may have that precious gift of eternal life' (Helaman 5:8). My . . . invitation to you is to find out what Helaman asked his sons to remember and then to teach those things to your children. I'll help you this much. Read and ponder Helaman, chapter 5."

(H. Bryan Richards, "Remember the Teachings of Your Father," Ensign, Nov. 2004, 96)

For those of you who have children - what do you teach them? What do you want to teach them? It is amazing that there is even parental guidance found in the book of mormon.

For those of you who may not yet have children - What do you want to teach them when you do have them? What would you teach your primary class if you were the teacher? What examples would you set?
