    Impart to

    I have tried to use "impart to" in my sentence. Would you please take a look at it and correct my mistakes?

    Peter was a strict parent. He had always tried to impart high ethical and moral values to his children.

    I'm not sure I'd bother with "high". "Ethical and moral values" would suffice.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You could also say:

    He had always taught his children to live by high moral and ethical standards.

    If you can have low standards surely you can have high standards.

    Re: Impart to

    Yes, but that version doesn't use 'impart to'.
