Moral and Spiritual Education for the Next Generation

A simple and beautiful excerpt from Baha'i International Website explaining why Baha'is in the world are conducting these children classes.

The Bahá’í writings attach great importance to the periods of childhood and youth, providing clear guidance to parents and communities to raise children in a nurturing and unambiguous environment.

Youth are encouraged to develop a strong sense of purpose, empowering their own transformation and leading them to contribute to the advancement of society. Young people’s spiritual capacity, the basis for their own happiness and sense of well-being, is a powerful force for social change.

Bahá'ís believe that moral, spiritual, and values-based training for children and youth is essential in order to nurture these capacities.

Thus, Bahá'í communities sponsor moral education classes for children and youth of all backgrounds. The classes seek to develop essential virtues such as the knowledge of God, trustworthiness, honesty, and justice. They aim to build a strong moral framework that will assist children to achieve excellence in material, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of life.

“Regard man as a mine rich in gems of inestimable value,” wrote Bahá’u’lláh. “Education can, alone, cause it to reveal its treasures, and enable mankind to benefit therefrom.”

Bahai Homeschool!

I personally dont feel confident to Homeschool my kids yet, and I dont know if Baha'ullah wants us to Homeschool our kids. But whether it's a choice we are left with or if we are left with no choice for now, this seem to be a good thing after all.

Even if we don't end up homeschooling, the best place for learning to take place is at home. All these resources serves as a great tool for us to educate our kids at home.

I googled " Bahai Homeschool" and this is what I found:

I just had a browse on the book last night: A Well Trained Mind, a easy to read, great book for starting to educate your child at home from young. Simple steps to start from home

Thers's a yahoo group, once you join they sent you a lot of useful information for teaching your kids at home.

This mother is a Bahai and she home-school her kids. I think she's from Canada I dont know. But her website is very interesting. Take a look.

Share it with your friends who may be interested :)
