Educating a child is not simply a case of lecturing, giving orders, and punishment when they disobey. To become good educators, adults must think about the qualities and virtues that dwell within the soul and spirit of the child and then focus on the divine spark living within, to give this spark all the conditions it needs to express itself. In this way they would foster the growth of these magnificent seeds within the child later on.
And because a child does not always understand what is being said, or why, you should also address their subconscious. For example when they are asleep, the parent or carer can go beside the child’s bed, and without waking them, caress them lightly, speak to them about all the good they wish them. In this way, they place deep in the child’s being, precious elements that, when revealed years later, will protect them from many mistakes and dangers.
