We always receive positive feedback from parents regarding their children’s enthusiasm about attending our Kids Dhamma Program with CDF. The monks who teach the class have worked with kids for many years and know how to teach Dhamma to kids in a way that is both understandable and meaningful to their lives. If they understand and see how the Dhamma applies to their own lives, then they always want to learn more.
