    The preposition for 'guide' please...

    Hi,
    Would it be alright to say, '...guide them in the right way'? (Talking about children)

    ('steering them in the right direction' is why I'm thinking of that preposition.)


    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    "Guide them in the right way" is possible, but it doesn't mean the same as "guide them on the right way".
