Spirituality is often confused with religion and yet it is everything but that. Simply speaking Religion is an organized faith aiming to reach spirituality to every person irrespective of his/her education level, wealth, caste, creed, nationality.
The need for religion arose when the people on earth encountered the challenge of living in harmony under the growing pressures of everyday survival. The prophets delivered the religious scriptures to people in various parts of the world, in different languages and under different names. That is how we have so many different religions although the original messages of all are the same.
Some rituals were developed to make the rules of living universally accepted for the believers of the particular religions. And if we can leave apart the excesses and fanaticism, religion per say is a means to help us get in touch with our spiritual.
However, as science grew on the world, and as some aspects of religion were made into superstitions for personal gain of a few, man gradually became distanced from his own spirituality.

Spiritual parenting Launch date




Spiritual Parenting, as the name suggests is about connecting with kids spiritually while helping them grow. An instant connection with Kids - that is the goal this books seeks to establish for its readers.
The core strength of this book is the way Dr. Sapna transitions through different phases of her life while presenting her learning through her conversational stories with her kids that will generate interest in a reader. The book flows like a story with lessons covered in descriptive manner. The book opens up the perspectives of the children, the way they see the world and how their views conflict with their parents’s views.
Spiritual Parenting is different from other books because it is inspired by the lessons taught by children on the subjects that otherwise focus on the complex perspective of an expert to explain or motivate readers. It reiterates the forgotten lessons of childhood for parents of today..
When going into details, the book connects the concepts of parenting with spirituality and explores a set of diverse ideas of God versus religion, right and wrong, happiness and self-esteem. A chapter on Labels is a unique read that explores the idea of labels through different scenarios.
This book can be used by all the parents who wish to connect with their children spiritually and those who are finding it difficult to understand the perspective of their children. In general, it can be useful for any parent, expectant parent, grand parents and just about anyone.

However, the book still doesn't restrict its lessons for parents as it is more of a spiritual book that talks about self-awakening and thus, may be used by anyone as one can be benefited through the simple understanding of the connect edness with ones source.
Not only parents, adolescents may also find it an interesting read as it explores their perspective and may even feel like recommending it to their parents after the exploration.

When parents strive to give their children the best of everything at an early age, they are sowing seeds for materially insatiable monsters that are prone to sloth, apathy, avarice and fear.
 Don’t stand in self- defense as yet. I have proof. As I Sit in my counselor’s chair day after day I encounter an altogether new disorder that I have come to label as- Parent Induced Wastefulness (PIW).
 Here are a few examples: 
  1. 26-year-old Manas does not want to finish his Engineering degree because he does not ‘feel like’ studying. But he harasses his parents every day for his spending money. He tells me that whenever he did not feel like any doing particular activity his parents told him he can quit. They always said they did not want him to get ‘stressed’ like they had when growing up.
  1. 34-year-old Raghav is a qualified Engineer and is married for 2 years but his wife is not ready to live with him hence the counseling. He is qualified al right but refuses to stick to any job as it makes his feel stressed! Every two months he runs back home from work and wants his parents to solve his problem like they did every time he refused to go to school.
  1. 28 years old Anjali does not want to go back to her one-year-old marriage because it is too much for her to work in the office and then look after the household. She wants her mother to come and live with her and do the household work.
  1. 29-year-old Bhavesh showed me his horoscope (Which he carries everywhere). He says that when he was taken to one ‘reading’ since he could not clear some of his papers, the expert had told them that the horoscope showed a lot of negativity in whatever he did. “So” he says “What is the use of working when there would be nothing but negativity?”
 There are many but all originating in overzealous parents wanting to protect their children from even the smallest discomfort in childhood. You love them alright, but when you shell them from the adversities of life, what you are doing is bringing them up in a sterile environment. The result- the moment they are exposed to the world their immunity buckles up and they stand threadbare wanting to run away from everything that is anything but comfortable.
They have to live in this very world and away from you. Do you really love them? Or do you love yourself more? If it is them, then you would ensure to make them future ready- let them face, talk to them, provide support, but let them face- housework, studies, bullying and adversities. Tell them money is limited and let them learn to hear a lot of ‘NO’- That’s what makes them- FUTURE READY
