Modern society has started discovering that human beings have not just physical needs, but also emotional and spiritual needs. In the western countries, parents have provided abundantly for the material needs of their children. Yet despite their best efforts, most parents are baffled and pained to see their children succumb to stress, depression, addiction, violence, delinquent behavior and even suicide. Even if the children survive such unfortunate influences, when they grow up, often they have little respect for their parents and elders and they disregard ethical, moral and spiritual values that their parents cherish. Numerous surveys have confirmed that a child without a spiritual basis to his life easily falls prey to bad habits. A spiritually trained and guided child, on the other hand, is well equipped to counter harmful influences and confidently faces the stresses and tensions of modern life. Therefore, Weekend School for Kids aims to help responsible parents in raising their children by offering systematic and scientific training in spiritual culture and wisdom.
Weekend School for Kids adopts state of art techniques to make learning a joy.
