A practical guide for successful spiritual parenting based on the love of God, the love of family, and the love of children.
Children of the Kingdom conveys a practical approach to educating children in a loving and supportive manner, with spiritual principles, virtues, and character development serving as the foundation for their learning and growth. Using the Bahá'í writings, as well as personal experience, author Daun E. Miller demonstrates that there is an alternative to the chaos and confusion that many parents see engulfing the world and that children can be raised to be guided by moral and spiritual principles. Parents and families often run into difficult questions regarding the best way to raise children, and this book provides spiritually based answers. Written in chronological order so that busy parents can find what they need quickly and easily, the book designates each age group as an important stage in a child's life and one that demands specific action on the part of parents. The guidance shared in Children of the Kingdom focuses on the nature of the soul and the vital reasons why we should educate our children spiritually.
