    It's wrong of us to do...

    Hi,

    It’s also wrong of us to raise our kids in such a way that they never have a chance to be intellectually challenged on issues of faith.


    In the above sentence, can I use 'for' instead of 'of' in "wrong of us to raise"?

    Or, can I put it into "Also it’s not right of us to raise our kids in such a way that they never have a chance to be intellectually challenged on issues of faith"?

    Thanks in advance.

    'For' is more common.

    Or, can I put it into "Also it’s not right of us to raise our kids in such a way that they never have a chance to be intellectually challenged on issues of faith"?
    You can but, once again, 'for' is more common.
