Excerpt from Children's Past Lives
Chapter 16: See Children Differently
Once we accept the fact that our own children have lived before, we can never see any children the same way again. It changes our concept of what children are.
We can no longer see children as inferior to us simply because they are little and can't reach the faucets or tie a shoe. For now we know that children are more than just biological beings shaped by heredity and environment. They are spiritual beings, too, who bring with them wisdom and experience gathered from other lives on earth. If we accept this view—that children are experienced souls in little bodies—we realize that they have more available to them, and more to offer us, than we ever thought possible before.
