    difference in meaning

    1. For this reason, parents should attempt to keep their children away from these films, and to teach them right from wrong.

    2. For this reason, parents should attempt to keep their children away from these films, and teach them right from wrong.

    Are both sentences correct? If so, what is the difference in meaning?

    Re: difference in meaning

    Hi kohyoongliat
    .
    This is how I see the difference:
    1. For this reason, parents should attempt to keep their children away from these films, and to teach them right from wrong.
    For this reason, parents should attempt to keep their children away from these films, and (parents should attempt) to teach them right from wrong.
    .
    2. For this reason, parents should attempt to keep their children away from these films, and teach them right from wrong.
    For this reason, parents should attempt to keep their children away from these films, and (parents should) teach them right from wrong.
