I am aware this question is more a parenting question, however the reason I see the merit in it being here is because Hinduism may not fit very well within the Parenting community.
The reason I ask is, to me, I was just told idol worship in a temple is holy, which I think is narrow and feel there has to be a better way. Teaching them meditation may not be appropriate either.
While children don't question and will accept what we say, is there anyone who has thought about this and found any mature way of introducing Hinduism to them in various stages of their upbringing. Even better, is there a prescribed way to do this in any of our literature.
