She not only loves her children but also leads them. She not only loves but also leads her children. Which is more suitable?


The grammar is fine in both, but that word lead bothers me.

Mothers guide their children. :)

To lead a political party; to lead a nation; to lead troops into battle. The word is pretty "loaded".

  • I expect learner is going for the alliteration, but I agree in this context "lead" doesn't work. Time to break out the thesaurus! – Andrew Sep 30 '16 at 0:53
