In this month's Ensign there is an article titled Our Parental Duty to God and to the Rising Generation by Elder Robert D Hales...several things really struck me as being important.
"Do we recognize the urgency of our duty to help our children understand and live gospel princeiples?" I found it interesting that he used the word urgency...it implies that is is more that just important...it is vital that it happen NOW!
"Do our actions tell them (our children) that gospel living is not a burden but rather a joy?"
Among other things he mentioned how we need to help our children develop personal religious practices such as personal scripture study and personal prayer to help them develop faith and their own testimony.
