Indifference

linebreak

“Brothers and sisters, protecting children means that we provide an environment that invites the Spirit into their lives and validates it in their hearts. That automatically eliminates any form of indifference, neglect, abuse, violence, or exploitation.

“And while conditions of depravity are more serious, we also protect children from other detrimental conditions, such as expectations that are too high or too low, overindulgence, over scheduling, and self-centeredness. Either extreme dulls a child’s ability to identify, trust, and be guided by the Holy Ghost.”

Margaret S. Lifferth, First Counselor, Primary General Presidency
“Behold Your Little Ones,” October 2006 General Conference

“May we never be indifferent, sisters, to the suffering of others. May we be sensitive to those about us who are hurting for whatever reason.”

Joy F. Evans, First Counselor, Relief Society General Presidency
