Here is an opportunity for parents to be awakened and humbled by compassion.
The child waits eagerly to follow the footsteps that you fashion.
Ultimately, wisdom speaks solemnly: 'Tomorrow's Humanity is about Today's Child...Following the Footsteps of the Parent.'

Tomorrow's Humanity is About Today's Child Following the Footsteps of the Parent!
Dear Child Centered, Well-Intentioned Parents,
I would like to emphasize upon our human call to cultivate quality parental attention.
The books titled, 'Compassionate Engaged Parenting as 'A Help to Life" and 'Roots of Moral Sensitivity and the Emerging Tree of Life' have been lovingly authored by me to awaken all parents about the value of useful mentorship and its cultivation on behalf of the child. They may be accessed via the following link: http://www.amazon.com/Nelunika-Gunawardena---Rajapakse/e/B003XVD1DQ First and foremost, the suggested books will be useful guides to sharpen your parenting skills along your journey of engaged parenting.
As the next step, it is important that you become a partner in learning and exploration taking every step beside your child - as opposed to teaching your child. A child feels truly loved when parents take the time to remain eagerly engaged in their discoveries about 'life, being, and world'. This is the field of integrated learning when the child and the parent may, together, realize that all phenomena are the consequences of spontaneous interrelationships incessantly occurrent within one vast play-field of cosmic interdependence. The conventional areas of study known as 'subjects' are, in simplest terms, the diverse perspectives or points of view to look upon the magnanimous, indivisible field of interdependence - attributed to be 'the universe.'
Therefore knowledge ought not be segregated or segmented into subject areas, time-slots, standardizations, and academic prescriptions, that are accompanied and compounded with the additional baggage of stress, anxiety, competition, coercion, and a host of subsidiary negative emotions. Let learning thrive by means of engaged five-sense experience as the foundation for all abstractions and extractions of all conceptual thought processes that take place later in life, especially after 6-12 years of age.
I will continually add information that correspond to my collection of published books and guided presentations for the purpose of engaged partnerships in discovering our world. Explorations must be pursued along lines of mutual interest. Therefore, my presentations are systematically analyzed to support diverse partnerships and levels of interest.
