Raising spiritually aware children
Raising spiritually aware children can feel confusing, so let me put you at ease. It isn't your responsibility. It belongs to the Universe. You may be the most spiritually unaware parent on the planet and, through no fault of your own, still end up with spiritually aware offspring (the converse also happens). You can cooperate with Universal Wisdom in raising aware children. The principles for doing so apply to all flavors of religion or spirituality.
