Parents and teachers often find themselves in a counseling role, helping children deal with challenges or make a moral decision. While it may feel good to exercise our wisdom and give advice, it is more valuable in the long run to empower children to arrive at their own solution. The art of „Spiritual Companioning‟ described in the book Family Virtues Guide is a dynamic counseling approach which as the author, Linda Popov, puts it: “honors the child‟s ability to find his own truth in the context of virtues.” It helps
increase self esteem and improves the emotional health of the child.
