Definitely a good and very necessary idea.
And, spirituality has got absolutely nothing to do with religion. While
religious doctrines cripple the mind of a child, spirituality expands it.
Have you seen what these Christian schools do to children? That is
nothing short of violent and abusive brainwashing. The bible belt is
not the best place for a child to grow up. It enters adulthood scarred
and traumatized, unable to see fact from fiction, with ideas that go
completely against even the most basic things we know of reality.
Some of these children actually think God made the world in six days..

I understand and agree to what your saying. But how can we have every house hold open to this practice? I think School would be the only way to expose people to it, then maybe they could do it at home with their children.

I see this as a very private and personal endeavor. Children should be allowed to explore and question; not forced to adhere to , which is what I think happens too often at school.
So..should parents of school age kids get them to practice and seek?
Why of course.
