Can Your Kids Do This?

The question which needs to be asked is "Are the parents teaching any Sikhi to their children?"

Do the parents expect the children about their religion from their schools or God knows where?

Why are most parents not taking any responsibility in giving the values of Sikhism to their children?

Why are parents not teaching their mother language Punjabi to their children?

There are heaps of questions which parents need to answer.

The early years of life are the most impressionable years of one's life. The earlier you teach them, the better they remember. In my opinion, it is very important that parents teach gurmukhi, gurbani, punjabi and itihas (sakhia) to their kids from an early age. They can learn their alphabet and "twinkle twinkle" at pre-school/ kindergarten, but won't be able to learn any sikhi there.

Your opinion is absolutely right but how many parents are following that opinion.

We are being our own worst enemies by not teaching Sikhi to our children

This has become a very big problem both in India and overseas.

On my recent trip to Punjab, I was shocked to note that most children just do not

speak Punjabi.They speak Hindi. Shame on the parents who are allowing this to happen.

And overseas again the lazy parents will not speak or teach Punjabi to their children.

If we do not wake up to this acute problem, we will have to pay for it dearly and our

coming generations will become a group of absolutely confused individuals who are neither Sikhs

nor non -Sikhs.
