To imbue with

Idiom: To imbue with

Example #1:

Saul: What should we teach during summer camp this year?

Jay: I’m not sure, but remember last year’s camp? Our teachers really imbued us with a positive attitude.

Saul: That’s because we had a mature leadership crew last year.

Jay:I’m sure they imbued us with good values so we could have a positive influence on new camp members.

Example #2:
Leslie: Our mother really imbued us with good values, don’t you think?
She sure did.
Leslie: She really made an
effort to influence us in a good way.
That’s why mom is the best.
Meaning: The expression “imbued with
means to influence or inspire someone to be filled with a feeling/custom. 
In the first example
above, Leslie mentions that her mom “imbued her” with good
values. That means her mother taught her
how to be a good person.
