Bringing up children in a Buddhist family – essential approach

The most essential here is to be a good example to them. It is also very important for them to learn how to share things and care about others. We shouldn’t safeguard them against the experience which form their character. If they want to climb a tree, and it is not too high, then let them do it. Children should receive significant part of the knowledge from their peers. It is not a problem if a child is difficult at the age of three, but it is at the age of thirty. Let them acquire experience and be a support for them in order for them to experiment resting upon a solid basis.

One should not force their children to be Buddhists. They will develop natural interest because they will like calm meditation time. They are likely to start practicing Buddhism if they become proud of you.
