A child, though, from his unconscious early childhood - to his later years of conscious development through 12 years of age, and thereafter, through youth - becomes the beneficiary of the culture that his parents provide. A child's fortune, or perhaps his misfortune, ultimately, is the conditioning he receives from his parents, without choice.
Therefore, it is the parent's responsibility to be grounded upon a philosophy that assures solid cultural enrichment to the developing child, as well as the overall family.
Most importantly, the inculcation of life-values and ideals must be rooted in compassionate, moral principles of benevolence towards all that compose the tapestry of life and being. Life-experience of this nature will only bring forth the rich fruits of wholesome thoughts, words, and deeds.
