Dear Yogiji

Q: How can I raise my children to be spiritually aware so they have the inner strength and wisdom not to turn to drugs and sex?

A: Be with them. Play with them. Talk with them about values and virtues. Mother is the first teacher. Children are her future at every cost. She cannot give them birth and just let them go, rather, she has to give them values and character and let them grow. With kindness, compassion, smiles, and sweetness share with them the stories of all great and successful people so they can have positive role models.

    Gurumustuk, was the answer given by Yogi Bhajan or did you provide the answer to the question? I am just curious. Thanks for the great work!

  2. The “Dear Yogi ji” Q&A are from Aquarian Times Magazine and the answers are from Yogi Bhajan and not me.

    if a 23 year old makes a mistake, is it still the mothers fault? does she still get a black face? do society always have to blame the mother?

    i dont think that the mother is always the childs teacher…but i do agree with one thing which is that positive role modals mostly contribute towards positive behaviour. For the record other factors contributing to a child’s learning bahviour are peers, education, parents, and television and text books. as for a mother letting go of her children, this may not always be the case….sometimes the mother may be forced to let go of her children because she is unable to cope and look after them…not all sucessful people had mothers so how does that explain thir success or staying away from drugs?? this then goes to show that the mother is not always the teacher!!!!!!!!! this suggests that other people or role modals play a part in a childs learning and behaviour.
