Summary
Psychologist Lisa Miller presents the science and the power of spirituality. She explains the clear, scientific link between spirituality and health and shows that children who have a positive, active relationship to spirituality are 40% less likely to use and abuse substances; are 60% less likely to be depressed as teenagers; are 80% less likely to have dangerous or unprotected sex; and have significantly more positive markers for thriving including an increased sense of meaning and purpose, and high levels of academic success. Combining cutting-edge research with broad anecdotal evidence from her work as a clinical psychologist to illustrate just how invaluable spirituality is to a child's mental and physical health, Miller translates these findings into practical advice for parents, giving them concrete ways to develop and encourage their children's -- as well as their own -- well-being
