I wished I had a method to keep them all from doing the worldly thing...YET it gives me hope to remember God's Word on that..when they are old they will not depart from it.

"Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6

This verse begs an interpretation. Is it: If we correctly carry out the first part of the verse, our children will not walk away from their faith? Or is it: If we do the first part of the verse, and 80% of them DO walk away, any surviving children will eventually wise up and come back?

I believe that it is the latter.

Here is a bit of "secular wisdom" that applies to the young folks in your second interpretation:

Some of us Learn from Other People's mistakes...

The rest of us ARE the Other People.

Given the coarsening culture, it appears that the second category will go way past the current 80%. I thank the Lord that my boys didn't fall away. And I will NOT let my grandkids do so.

I am blessed to have 2 wonderful Kids now 29 and 23.  Grand kids are now 5 2 and 5 months.  They are getting the same as we did our kids growing up.  

Yet I look around and there are a bunch of folks that did the same as we did and their kids would break hell wide open if the Lord came back right now.  Sadly I don't think there is much we can do  about the foolishness of youth.  Yet we can remain in Prayer and stand on God's Word that they most likely will come around.

Until He comes back I too will do my BEST with His help to try and steer these young people away from hells gates.

I will say that most colleges are so liberal I don't know if it's a good idea to send our youth there. I had a girl come over from Evangel University years back and what she offered was not in the Good book. My retired 2nd line boss is a graduate of Evangel Temple and she is the significant other to another she. Even when we send our kids to Christian College .... we can only hope for a Life Long Christian to Emerge.

It's in God's Hands. Stay prayed up and be active in doing the right things with HIS HELP.

Proverbs are general sayings not necessarily absolutes.
