Now a days we are sending our children before the age of 3,i am not findings fault with their parents they have no alternatives,there is no one to look after their children. It is good if we teach yoga in the small classes,from Ist standard, the children will get the capacity to control their anger and have a spiritual thinking from childhood. In offices from the heavy work load and tension the person will get some relaxation it will also reflect their family life.the home become a paradise what is your suggestion?

No it`s not a good thing.People should choose if they want their kids to practice yoga or not.Just like they should choose if they want their kids to do religion in school.

For example because i`m european and i live in a christian country and i`m also a christian (well not exactly a good one but i still have time to fix that ) i will want my kid to learn how to pray and how to turn the other cheek instead of learning some oriental BS i don`t trust.So he will become a better sheep.Then i can teach him at home how to kick other kids butts If someone has something against christian religion they should choose their kid to do something else like yoga,more sports or whatever they think it will help their kid in life.These things should not be mandatory because i don`t want my kid ( if i will ever have one ) to learn something as useless as i think yoga is just like some others won`t want their kid to learn something else they consider useless.

We have sports at school. I think it would be great if children at school would try out all kind of sports and excercising, incl. judo, yoga, dancing. This way they will be able to find out what they are good at, what kind of effect it has on them and who knows they will also able to join that in their free time as well. School should be there to develop all kind of talents kids have. Using is as a way to control their anger is short thinking to my opinion. Many kids have a very good reason to be angry, just like adults. It's wiser to find out why they are angry, teach them how to expres their feelings and tell them why they don't like to be bulied or fight back as holding it in, teaching to ignore it, that the bully is just a stupid idiot and getting sick because nothing is so bad and takes so much energy as holding it in, ignoring and neglecting your feelings.
