I am not a parent myself. But I've seen how my parents and my friends' parents brought us up. We are taught to know and love God and others. I think it is important that parents teach their children "the training and discipline and the counsel and admonition of the Lord." I think this is the best gift our parents can give us. In my case, I found happiness (though not perfect happiness) and a satisfying life despite hardships I face because I know that God will not leave me. Even if I am out of my parents' sight, I know God will be with me. I respect that there are many people who are too busy to teach their children about God. But I think this is really helpful. It is also a good protection. I do respect if there are parents who won't teach their kids about God.

Yes. I teach my children to know God and love Him most. But the nature of all the teenagers now is a lot of difference from us when were at their age. They become lazy going to church every Sunday and they pray seldom. Even I gave them my self as an example on how to serve God i taught it doesn't matter to them, still they are ignoring what was i'm teaching them.
