How to bring up intelligent, filial, and upright children?

 

Di Zi Gui, the book that contains the standards for being a good student and child, has the answer for modern parents.

 

Many of us will probably wonder what this book is all about, what is in this book that made it so important in ancient China, and can it still be relevant today?  If we teach this book today, what can it do for us and what kind of influence will it have on our present society?

 

The book teaches us that "A good student and child must first learn to be dutiful to his parents, and be respectful and loving to his siblings. Next he must be cautious with all people, matters and things in his daily life, and be a trustworthy person. He must believe in the teachings of the ancient saints and sages and put their teachings into practice. Then he must learn to love all equally and be close to and learn from people of virtue and compassion?"

 

This book helps our children put the teachings of the ancient saints and sages into actual practice, and that is why this book is so important for our educational system today. It is definitely still relevant today, actually even more so.

 

The book is also available for free distribution.  Click here.
