Parents and teachers know that learning begins at birth. Language and a basic understanding of rules are learned as an on going process throughout the life of a child beginning at birth. Early attention has been paid to enriching the young child with reading, writing and math skills. However, the attention given to these subjects has not been applied to the spiritual development of a young child. If a child can learn the vocabulary of their native language, a child can learn the vocabulary of the Church. If a child can learn the "ABC's", a child can learn the basic prayers of the Church. If a child is to learn that God loves him/her and he/she should love Him back, a child needs to know WHO and WHAT God is. It is the responsibility of parents, teachers and the Church to begin the spiritual teaching of a child from Birth!!!
