Children's Image of God and Their Parents: Explorations in Children's Spirituality
Baring, Rito
International Journal of Children's Spirituality, v17 n4 p277-289 2012
Exploring children's image of God and parents has invited interest among program preparers for children's spirituality in the Philippines. This research seeks to find out the fundamental orientation of children's image of God as well as their perceptions of father and mother from 241 fifth graders in three selected government primary schools in Manila. This study takes cue from the traditional theories that affirm the interaction between the environment and the individual and attempts to know how children's experiences with their parents are expressed together with their image of God. Through these objectives, the study hopes to bring fresh ideas into the current spirituality in children. Results of this study provide insights about the elements in children's spirituality in an Asian setting. (Contains 8 tables.)
