EDITORIAL Empowering our families ?A magnification of selfishness,?1 is the natural consequence of a society in which family ties are relaxed, said the Illuminated Minds to Kardec. <br/> And, isn?t it what is precisely happening in our current society? Why? In our present planetary transition from<br/> a world of trials and atonements to a world of regeneration, families have become the main target of this transformation. <br/> Family values have been challenged by new customs and by new types of family dynamics. <br/> Marriage and parenting are today central issues in many doctor?s offices.<br/> <br/> For example, in the United States alone, there has been a decline in marriage rate mostly due to an increase in cohabitation, single-person households and single parenthood. <br/> Predictions tell that if current trends continue, the percentage of U.S. <br/> adults who are currently married<br/> will fall down more. <br/> Also, the ratio of new marriages to divorces is 2 to 1. <br/> This is quite shocking, especially when children are involved in the family that is splitting. <br/> Is it possible to get married and/or divorced without spiritual consequences? What would they be? In the<br/> current rollercoaster of family life, parents? confidence in their parenting skills and abilities has been put to test in our world. <br/> Statistics show that parents have found it difficult to educate their children nowadays. <br/> Putting limits and creating a respectful environment at home with<br/> honored boundaries between parents and children have become an unprecedented challenge. <br/> Are some children truly difficult or are they our ?different children? as Emmanuel reveals. <br/> Shall we give up on our children and leave them to their whims? Are there spiritual roots for our family<br/> ties? Are there consequences on the choices we make regarding our parental education? Is there a family constellation to rely upon? Inspired by a beautiful and profound vision during the inspirational Sixth United States Spiritist Symposium in Atlanta (USA), we dedicate this issue to empowering our<br/> families. <br/> Confirmed by other sources present in the event, there were some of the Founding Fathers and Mothers of the United States of America as the event was spiritually broadcast to the fifty main spiritual colonies in the country. <br/> A group represented mostly by five women (see cover2<br/> of the magazine) was especially present to remind everyone of the importance of rescuing family values and empowering our families. <br/> Amongst these extraordinary Spirits were Abigail Adams, Leonor Roosevelt, Clara Barton, Emily Dickinson and Eliza Ann Grier (the first African American woman to<br/> be emancipated, earn a medical degree and practice medicine in the State of Georgia). <br/> These unique women have also joined forces with the great minds of Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln, John Adams and many others who have a commitment with the dissemination of the Spiritist message in true<br/> collaboration with the eminent educators Allan Kardec and his wife Amelie Gabrielle Boudet. <br/> In veritable search for a much needed balance and harmony in our families, dear reader, you will herein find the Spiritist perspective and its therapeutics, which can potentially heal and empower our<br/> families. <br/> As the respectable Chico Xavier often reminded us, there is great need to create special education for parents and couples in order to promote family wellness and strength. <br/> And the most recent scientific discoveries in Psychology and Sociology have already pointed out that<br/> parental and marriage educational programs may lead us to a better structured society. <br/> The challenge is up. <br/> Let us embrace it! After all, a regenerated society is founded in empowered families! Vanessa Anseloni, PsyD, PhD Editor-in-chief  The Spirits? Book by Allan Kardec, Q/A 775<br/> published by EDICEI. <br/> (2) This cover was especially drawn by the artist Marcos Falcão to the request of the TSM?s editor-in-chief. <br/> The fine portray is a glimpse of the vision described in the editorial. <br/> In clockwise motion, you will find the portrait of Amelie G. <br/> Boudet, Allan<br/> Kardec, Leonor Roosevelt, Clara Barton, Eliza Ann Grier, Emily Dickinson and, in the center, Abigail Adams. <br/> The artist, Marcos Falcão, is a Spiritist who is affiliated with the Kardecian Spiritist Society of Florida (KSFF) together with his wife Maria José. <br/> Falcão has been producing fine<br/> portraits of historical Spiritist names such as Allan Kardec, Joanna de Angelis, Chico Xavier and many others. <br/> The upcoming issue of The Spiritist Magazine will dedicate an article to his fine art collection and his charitable dedication The Spiritist to the Spiritist movement through his<br/> artistic abilities. <br/> MA GA ZIN E 3
