To Our Readers

In most of the northern hemisphere, it's back-to-school time. Moms and dads have been scurrying around for days, getting their children ready for the first day of classes.

Finally, everything is more or less ready. Clothes are clean and mended. New books are bought. Lunch boxes are packed. You've checked out the new school, the new teacher, the new school bus driver, the new after-school program. You've even given your child a few math review sessions, to make sure he/she didn't forget everything over the summer. What more could anyone do?

Well, as cover story author Jan Keeler suggests in "Spiritual education for children" there may still be one more thing you can do for your child. And it's probably the most important thing. You can help your child develop a set of spiritual skills that will help him/her at any school, at any level. Skills that will prepare your child to be a good student, a good friend, a good citizen—and much more. And these spiritual skills will outlast the school term. They'll be with your child forever.
