Children learn by trying, and often, by failing.Religious parents
must be vigilant to not let the kid think that everything will be taken care of
by their beliefs: God gave people hands and brains to take care of everyday
matters.In the past, I have found that disagreements with lds
members turned from cordial to angry when I pushed for more understanding or
finding a middle ground. If you are raised to believe that everything is already
answered, and not encouraged to form your own world views, you do not form good
skills for discussion.I would imagine this is a major issue for lds today.
Although the apostles, etc were raised in an era of conformity, kids today have
so much input from the internet, etc, that it is foolish to expect them to think
and act like someone born in 1940 or 1950.
Letting go is the art of parenting. Parents need to teach correct principles,
than have the faith to let go. Like the mother of Moses, she let go, but
remained caringly involved, something not meant for the faint in heart.
