“Parental hypocrisy can make children cynical and unbelieving of what they are taught at home. For instance, when parents attend movies they forbid their children to see, parental credibility is diminished. If children are expected to be honest, parents must be honest. If children are expected to be virtuous, parents must be virtuous. If you expect your children to be honorable, you must be honorable.”

James E. Faust, Ensign Magazine “The Greatest Challenge in the World – Good Parenting”(Salt Lake City, UT: The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, November 1990), 33-34.
