Parenting Advice from Conversations with God
This Week's Featured Question
Why should I teach these messages to my children?
Shouldn't I just wait and let them figure it out for themselves?
Thank you for your question. We really do appreciate what you are saying and we wish to start by saying there is no right or wrong answer to this question. As with anything in the CwG messages, you decide what feels good to you and your family. So if you do not wish to share the messages with your child, then that is the answer for you and your child will tell you when he or she is ready. However, if you wish to share the messages but are not sure how to approach them with your child - we are here to help you!
I, personally, found the School of the New Spirituality after my daughter, four years old at the time, started voicing fear about God because of things she had heard from other people and books. I used the first lesson in the CwG4Kids.com (members area) curriculum to calm her fears and show her that God loves her just as she is and will not judge her. She understood from that lesson that God loves her, will never be mad at her (even if she makes a "mistake") and that God only wants her to be her happiest self. The clearing of fear and pain that I witnessed in this dawning of understanding convinced me that I wanted to be a part of this special work!
Many children, even at young ages, want to know and understand their place in the world. They want to feel One with the Universe, feel the love of others and understand their own spirituality...Who They Really Are! Our program is here to help parents share that gift of love and understanding with their children. Provided of course, that this is your desire! We are not here to tell you what to do or when, we only seek to serve you through support, community and lessons (if you choose).
Thank you and best to you and your family!
