Parents and children form a closer bond by spending quality time together. At the Bodhi Kids Class, the whole family learn and grow in the Dharma together! More families come together to share their experiences in a supportive group environment. A closing dedication helps the kids focus on positive and loving thoughts. Making a simple wish for oneself and others to be well and happy can be a wonderful way to nurture young minds.
