For parents who consider themselves spiritual, transmitting their spirituality—or at least an appreciation of spirituality and a sense of God and ethical behavior—to their children presents a serious challenge. CARETAKING A NEW SOUL is a collection of writings on parenting that brings together ideas, suggestions, practices, and advice from parents of diverse beliefs. Each section focuses on different periods in the lives of parents and children—beginning with pregnancy and birth, to infancy and childhood, to adolescence. Suggestions for ceremonies and rituals to mark special times are included.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 300-309) and index.
