Is your child wise beyond his or her years? According to Dr. Tobin Hart, children may be far more attuned to the spirit and the soul than many adults can comprehend. Oprah and Dr. Tobin continue their exploration of this fascinating realm, which he refers to as the "secret spiritual world of children." His book by the same name explains how to recognize, identify and nurture a child's deep spiritual connections. Based on more than five years of interviews, The Secret Spiritual World of Children studies the phenomena of children's wisdom, wonder and visions, and reveals the complexity of their inner spiritual lives.
Oprah also recounts some of the stories and observations shared by Oprah Radio listeners about the spiritual nature of children in their lives. Hear about a 4-year-old and his younger brother who made a playdate with their grandmother—a fascinating conversation, considering their grandmother had passed away several months prior. Then, find out why one 7-year-old says that if you want to live your dreams, you must swallow them first. And, learn about a 17-month-old child who, though not yet able to speak, is obsessed with Dr. Maya Angelou.
