I should have known better...
children of Covenant-breakers, who have grown up with and still associate with their parents, are probably thoroughly infused with the Covenant-breaking spirit, and the friends must not associate with them until the Hands of the Cause have ascertained that these children have understood the sin of their parents and dissociated themselves from them.
(From letter dated 5 February 1969 to an individual believer)
The danger of meeting with children of Covenant-breakers is that even although they may never have been declared Bahá'ís there is always the likelihood that they have been strongly indoctrinated by their parents with the poison of Covenant-breaking.
(From a letter dated 9 June 1974 to an individual believer)
I should add to the above that this principle of avoiding contact with the children of Covenant-breakers was also articulated at least by Shoghi Effendi if not 'Abdu'l-Baha as well. But this avoidance (as with Covenant-breakers even) does not equate to any hostility, as Baha'is are encouraged to pray for Covenant-breakers, respect their rights, etc.
