If you have a habit of saying a small prayer every morning, you can make it a family ritual by teaching your child the same prayer. He may be more interested in the “Prasad” initially, but as time goes by he may also come to regard it as his own special ritual too. Festival times are special too; most children carry memories of their Diwali celebrations or the month of Ramzan or their own Christmas tree. The sweets, clothes, gifts, rituals and family visits are all part of the family tradition they will most probably take to their own families. Some families conduct a satyanarayan havan, puja or thanksgiving prayer service every year; remember to explain to your child the significance of what you are doing. If you are a multi religious family, help him understand the different ways of both sides of the family.
