    My children aged 15 & 9 usually sit with me when m reading the topics at SPN. The topics they can't understand, i explain to them. I make it a point to atleast explain one topic daily.

    Please share ur views.

    Regards

    Please forgive me

    Good point gurvinder ji

    I think there should be a section for children as many topics On SPN are quite complex and its better for children not to read those topics as it will confuse them more about sikhi.

    maybe yes

    maybe no

    children have sense of curiousity which is not shackled by the conventional thought.

    they question easily, they seek answers, they are comfortable with unknown, they are far easily able to accept that sometimes what meets the eye is not the only truth.

    I enjoy being in touch with the child inside.

    Maybe we could have a section or album included where children can upload drawings they make with Sikh themes?

    We could have simplified sakhis for them including images.

    Online quizzes to test their retention?


    A kids section is a good idea!

    Jios,

    A children's forum is a wonderful idea. Singh bj has posted many things for children already. And these threads could be moved to such a forum. The one thing we have to watch are laws protecting children on the Internet. I think with children under a certain age it would be a good idea for a parent to verify the child's email address. This is something that is done on many web sites. Also some features may need to be limited, such as private messages, so that children are not the victims of Internet predators. But it is all doable and would be a very uplifting forum for SPN. :)

    If we are going to have a kiddies section we should use a more friendly graphical interface with friendly colourful images as links.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
