We sometimes hear our children are the last best hope for humanity and our planet. Whether that’s true or not, Spirit has some thoughts about raising children in today’s world.


Your Children

If you’re religious, you may remember the Ten Commandments God reportedly gave to Moses. The second commandment is “Honor thy father and thy mother.”

Today, we’d like to turn that around and say to you who are parents, “Honor thy children.”

Becoming and being a parent today in your modern world, particularly in Western society, is an awesome responsibility. There has never been a time like this in all of human history on your planet.

You who are parents are literally holding in your hands the future of your planet and of humanity.

So we’d like to offer you today some suggestions on how you can ensure the best possible future for your planet by treating and honoring your children with love.

As you’ve heard many say over the centuries, love is the answer to all problems. And it truly is.

Our Suggestions

Here are a few of our suggestions regarding your children:

Treat them at all times with love and kindness. They, in turn, will grow into loving, kind adults.

You don’t need us to remind you that your world today needs far more loving kindness.

Ensure your children’s health on every level—physical, mental, spiritual. The balanced integration of those 3 aspects of your children is critical today.

For them to operate as fully functioning citizens of the planet, they need healthy bodies, minds, and spirits.

Become more fully aware of how your world, especially Western society, is working to control and manipulate people, especially young children.

What are the ways society does this? They are many. Here are a few:

  • Unhealthy, pesticide-ridden food
  • An educational system urging children to conform to society’s dictates
  • Pursuit of money and material wealth at all costs
  • Idolizing world leaders who value power over others above all else
  • Television news programs, movies, etc. featuring a steady stream of “bad” news—one of the most insidious influences on your planet today.
  • Religious or spiritual systems seeking to control people, discouraging reliance on the only true and valid power—the God within.

You get the idea. We urge you to consider what we’ve offered here today—especially if you are parents of young children. Or if you are in any way an influence for them, for example, as their teachers.
