how do I fix this sentence?

See example:

Not just as those things they can also teach them how to become a man or women and be a father or mother to their kids when that time comes.

If they're teaching "them," then they need plural nouns as well as better parallelism:  As well as those things, they can also teach them how to become men or women and fathers or mothers to their children with the time comes.  (If this is a formal paper, kids should only be used for baby goats.)
