Hello,

I'm wondering if this sentence is correct : "She tries to lead her children to their strongest".

After searching on the internet, the only contexts in which I can find the expression "lead to" are before a place ("All roads lead to Rome"), an action ("It led me to believe [something]"), or a state such as "success" or "happiness".

Should I simply say that the mother tries "to make their children be at their strongest" ?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

No. You can say this:

She guides / wants / teaches her children to be their best.

No. The only way "strongest" can be a noun is if it means "the one who is the most strong". I think you were trying for "She tries to lead her children to be their strongest." But even that is not quite natural. A mother raises or teaches her children to be something.
