There is some truth to this

From my Franklin Covey planner:

Teach the young people how to think, not what to think.
Sidney Sugarman

In general I do agree that it is more important to teach children how to think so they will be able to evaluate and figure out truths for themselves; however, there are some basic principles, like it is wrong to steal or to kill an innocent person, that I think it is OK to just teach them.  As they get older we can re-examine these ideas and hopefully they will agree.
