Something More: 2nurturing Your Child's Spiritual Growth

Jean Grasso Fitzpatrick, Author Viking Books $18.95 (256p) ISBN 978-0-670-83706-9
Fitzpatrick, a child-development specialist, here addresses an aspect of child-rearing that is too often neglected--spiritual growth. Her thesis: there are ``myriad connnections in the most ordinary acts of everyday family life'' that nurture children spiritually. From dialogues with parents from various religious traditions, as well as with the nonsectarian, a common ground emerges, expressed in a yearning to explore domestic spirituality. Her helpful insights and practical suggestions cover a range of experiences--for example, how to answer a child's questions about death, poverty or violence. Supplemented with a list of appropriate books and musical works, this is an excellent resource for the shared spiritual journey of parents and children. First serial to Parent's magazine; author tour. (Apr.)
