The development of character and integrity.
IF YOU ONLY REMEMBER ONE THING, MAKE IT THIS:
If your child sees you do it,
he thinks it’s OK!
Spiritual growth is about children growing in their understanding of how they’re
connected with the world around them.
You inspire your child’s spirituality when you present an environment that
provides opportunities for your child to experience their surroundings in
thoughtful ways; ways that encourage your child to enjoy the beauty of
nature, act kindly towards others and experience uninterrupted quiet time,
inviting feelings of calmness and contentment.
As your child becomes more connected with their world, you will begin to
see the emergence of behaviors that will signal to you your child is growing
in their spiritual development; increased service to others, an intensified
appreciation and respectfulness of their environment, a deeper
understanding of values, increased questioning about things they don’t
understand and greater clarity and insight about the
world around them.
The world will look bigger to your child, as they now see the world
through a wider lens. As your child grows in their spirituality, it is a beautiful
experience for a parent to observe.
