I'm vowing to make my house welcoming to members who want to have their children with them at meetings. We need to be accommodating from newborns on up. People need to feel welcome, guests included.

I would like to say we are so forunate to want to raise our children in the sgi. However @ the sametime we also need to teach the Mothers how to raise their children in the SGI. Example, teaching our precious young ones to respect the center they come to. Not just say don't do this or that but to be give them an explanation. It's very important not only teaching the youngsters but also teaching the mother or father is vital.

Does anyone know of a group here for Elementary School Division kids as well as ones for middle schoolers and high schoolers. Want to suggest to my own kids that they sign up here but they won't be interested if there aren't other kids they can talk to. Right now my 14 year-old is really into facebook. My 12 year-old a little less so. Would be nice for them to have a Buddhist group like that.

HI, my name is Irene. I have been practising more than 20 years. I have a daughter now 12 years old. As a working mother, it is very difficult for me to take care of my daughter everyday. Luckily, my mother helps me to take care of her. My daughter has been doing chanting together with me since she was young and also follow me to all activities organised by Soka. She's now in future Division and was taken care by a group of Young Women member. As a mother, i feel that setting a good example at home is very important, especially we practising Daishonin's Buddhism. Also our daily prayers too, Must chant and pray for our children to become 21st century future leaders and he/she must able to feel the power of this Mystic Law.

Hello, i have been practicing since 85. I am now the mother of three 7,5, and 3. It was my 7 y.o. who has really helped me perfect my pratices. He wants to learn gongyo as does the other two kids. My better understanding of the Law and the pratices has made me push myself to be a good example for my kids.

I do miss that my children did not have the benefit of a community center, but i am chanting to change that. I want them to grow up around other children in the pratice and for it just to be a part of their everyday life.

I have a 6 year old daughter. She comes to most of our meetings and sang songs for us at some district meeting, which amazes me since she is more on the shy side. Somehow the small amounts of daimoku made her stronger on more self confident:) I have to add that my retired military husband finally became an official member after two years of supporting me and our district. I feel very blessed being able to raise a "fortune baby" with my husband.
