Your email letter is received and read. Here is our response.
We also know and it is a fact that today, India's education system is such weak that it takes away the innocence from children. Childhood is for eating, playing and dancing.
A big concern is exposure to technology. Phone, computers and TV are distractions to study. Parents must set a specific time slot for watching cartoon on TV or computer. Phones must not be given to children.
For children, they should be allowed to play OUTSIDE for atleast 1 hour daily. This is essential for overall development. Children must be prepared to always listen to parents since the earliest childhood. They should have RESPECT for their parents. In return, parents also MUST have equal respect for their children. Because at the soul level, who we all are, we all are equal. We are Souls. Soul has no gender or age. Every soul being is equal in God's eyes.
For parents, need is to give moral values and essence of faith and spirituality to their children. Parents are role-model for child. They must behave such in home especially when children are around.
A family should eat together at a specific time. No matter, all must sit together. Before sleep, the family should talk for a while - How was my day today...
Family is one. Togetherness is the strength. Children should be guided in every step of life.
This is our advice.
