I saw this video early this morning and thought that is was interesting how it seemed to directly contradict these teachings of Brigham Young:
“We are the guardians of our children; their training and education are committed to our care, and if we do not ourselves pursue a course which will save them from the influence of evil, when we are weighed in the balance we shall be found wanting (LBY, xxiv).
Parents are responsible before the Lord for the way in which they educate and train their children, for “Lo, children are an heritage of the Lord; and the fruit of the womb is his reward. Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them; they shall not be ashamed [Psalm 127:3–5]” (DNW, 7 Dec. 1864, 2).
Parents, seek to honor your children; bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Teach them truth and not error, teach them to love and serve God [see Deuteronomy 6:5]; teach them to believe in Jesus Christ the Son of God and the Saviour of the world” (DNSW, 8 Aug. 1877, 1).

What do you think. Am I missing the point of the video, or is this a way the world is taking small and simple truths from us?
