In The Seven Spiritual Laws for Parents: Guiding Your Children to Success and Fulfillment
, healer and philosopher Deepak Chopra
follows up on his runaway bestseller, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success
, by extending and reinterpreting his spiritual laws for parents. "From the day your baby is born, you are a teacher of spirit," Chopra writes. "Look upon spirituality as a skill in living, since that is what it is. I believe in imparting these skills as early as possible by whatever means a child can understand." To meet this end, Chopra translates his own "laws" so that even the youngest child can comprehend them. For instance, Chopra's First Law, "The source of all creation is pure consciousness ... pure potentiality seeking expression from the unmanifest to the manifest," translates as "everything is possible." In his wise and deceptively simple program (focusing each day of the week on one of the seven laws), Chopra suggests ways for parents to teach children truly spiritual values by incorporating spiritual goals into family life. --Ericka Lutz
From Library Journal
Chopra, the best-selling inspirational author and director of the Chopra Center for Well-being, turns his attention here to teaching morality and spirituality to children. Reframing his spiritual laws (The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, LJ 5/1/95), he suggests ways parents can incorporate them into the upbringing of their children. He suggests devoting one day each week to each principle and gives examples of age-appropriate activities for children to foster the learning of these laws and the development of the child's spirituality. This book will appeal primarily to parents who have read Chopra's other books or who watch him on public television. Recommended for public libraries where Chopra's other books circulate.?Kay L.
