    Is the sentence correct?

    "We could use the skills to help our children develop their patterns of thinking and behaviour in leading to success in school and career development."

    If not, how to amend it? Thanks for your advice.

    There are lots of ways of saying this, but this has a better link, I think.

    Re: Is the sentence correct?

    Thank you , Raymott. I am wondering if as an English native speaker, the use of "in" is grammatically correct or makes sense in the sentence .

    If you have to use the sentence structure that you've chosen, "in" is an appropriate preposition. It's grammatically correct. As far as sense goes, if your sentence means the same as my sentence, then I have understood it correctly.
