Wayward Childrev.......

Elder Robert D. Hales of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles taught that parents can follow Lehi’s example when dealing with wayward children (and loved ones): “We should not let their choices weaken our faith.  Our worthiness will not be measured according to their righteousness.  Lehi did not lose the blessings of feasting at the tree of life because Laman and Lemuel refused to partake of its fruit.  Sometimes as parents and loved ones we feel we have failed when our children make mistakes or stray.  Parents and loved ones are NEVER failures when they do their best to love, teach, pray and care for their loved ones.
