Exploring childrens image of God and parents has invited interest among program preparers for childrens spirituality in the Philippines. This research seeks to find out the fundamental orientation of childrens image of God as well as their perceptions of father and mother from 241 fifth graders in three selected government primary schools in Manila. This study takes cue from the traditional theories that affirm the interaction between the environment and the individual and attempts to know how childrens experiences with their parents are expressed together with their image of God. Through these objectives, the study hopes to bring fresh ideas into the current spirituality in children. Results of this study provide insights about the elements in childrens spirituality in an Asian setting. © 2012 Taylor & Francis Group, LLC.
