Boyd K Packer:
    Teach the Children      Ensign, Feb 2000, from a talk given at BYU Education Week devotional 17 Aug 1999
There are various quotes and talks given by the General Authorities concerning the teaching of our children. This one by Boyd K Packer points out the role of parents as teachers when he said,
"No Teaching is equal, more spiritually rewarding, or more exalting than that of a mother teaching her children." 
     The Light of Christ; What Everyone Called to Preach the Gospel, Teach the Gospel, or Live the Gospel Should Know
     Ensign, Apr 2005, from an address given 22 June 2004 at a seminar for new mission presidents, MTC Provo UT.
He said,
"The more we know about the Light of Christ, the more we will understand about life and the more we will have a deep love for all mankind. We will be better teachers and missionaries and parents, and better men and women and children."
