What is the promise of Proverbs 22:6? That our children will drift or go away from their Christian faith for a time, but if they have been reared correctly they will find their way back? Or is it a promise that they will not depart?
Proverbs 22:6 can be translated this way:
Adapt the training of your child
so that in keeping with his or her
--when he or she comes to maturity--
they will not depart from the training
they have received.
