Raising child as a Sikh

Raising child as a Sikh...

How? When to start educating? I have so many questions in my head???

How can I successfully raise a Sikh? Or should I give a choice to my kid to select what he or she wants? Free will opportunity?

I would like to know about other people stories... Especially from mixed-race couples? We all know about hardship of Sikh parents in the west trying to keep Sikh identity. So many boys now prefer to be clean shaven and not to wear a turban, even patka... Even in Punjab girls prefer to marry clean shaven boys....I know from my relatives stories...

I know it's a hard job to raise a Sikh but hopefully I will succeed in it.... Please leave comments

hi i read your post for first time.ive recently had a baby girl gilr to my partnter whos sikh and we both agree she should be brought up the sikh way(am english)although we havent spoke of marriage,his parents except us and so do mine.In my opinion i think if a a non sikh as a child to a sikh they should bring their child up knowin both sets of values.
