Let me paraphrase - Raise them right in the ways of the Lord and they shall not stray from that path.
I found it to work most of the time.
Oh, but that takes time away from a “fulfilling career” and “American Idol”.
Better to have society raise the kids so that I have more free time to be irresponsible and indulge myself.
...not all the time, though...The wildest kids I know, and knew, are preachers kids. A good friend who diffently brought up his kids in a great enviorn is now facing drugs, and much trouble.
