As a parent, you can easily teach your children the basic skills they will need in life, from reading to swimming to computer literacy. But how do you nurture a sense of spirituality? Something More offers parents of all faiths, even those who don't consider themselves religious, everyday ways to make family life more meainginful. Jean Grasso Fitzpatrick reminds us that spiritual nurturing is not something we "do" to our child but is a journey that parent and child take together. This powerful book integrates spiritual insights, current child-development theory, and, in their own words, the experiences of parents. It features advice on how to answer your child's often difficult questions on everything from death to religious holidays to homelessness and includes lists of suggested books, music, and videos that will help you explore your own and your child's spirituality. Written in language that will touch the hearts of today's mothers and fathers, Something More is a very different kind of parenting book, one that parents will keep and treasure.
