Guiding your child into a world that recognizes spirituality is a difficult task. My wife and I, when our children were very young, we tried to introduce them to nature and to their place in nature so that they understood that there were other living things around them and that there was a being larger and greater than us and to appreciate that. We did it in simple ways. We went on camping trips. We went hiking. We climbed Mount Whitney. We stargazed. And we talked about these things and their beauty and the importance of them in the world that we live in and how we have to interact with that world and other things around us. And it was a great introduction to love, respect, compassion, and with that an appreciation for this greater thing that put us here to enjoy all of this.
