Q&A: 'How Do I Teach My Toddler
Start with simple rituals--and examine your own values.
My son is 20 months old, and I wonder what to teach him about spirituality. How do you teach a toddler about God? Since my husband and I are undecided ourselves, is the best way to explore different religions and try to teach him values?
A: Dear Anita,
Teaching values and exploring different religions are a great way to begin your family's spiritual journey. I encourage you to read simple books to your son that are rich in spiritual meaning. You might find your own soul fed by these lovely messages. I love "Where Does God Live?" by Holly Bea.
