Overview

A radical, new approach, "Spiritual Parenting" is a guide to caring for the naturally intuitive and spiritual core of every child. In the words of authors, counselors and ministers Hugh and Gayle Prather, 'This book reflects our deep personal conviction that parenting is a spiritual path, a form of worship.' In their characteristically warm style, the Prathers offer principles and practices that parents can use to understand and nurture their children at home, at school, and in the world. And parents are encouraged to learn how to focus on the spiritual aspects of child care amid the bewildering everyday complexities involved in guiding children toward adulthood.

With humor and realism, the Prathers tell stories and anecdotes about their own children and the children of families they have counseled to help today's parents break through conflicting ideas, emotions, and impasses. Through "Spiritual Parenting," you will learn how to cherish and enjoy your children at all stages of their growth.
