Yes, NRI's may learn Indian ethos by watching only Indian spiritual channels (of course without adopting any one particular Guru), and same is the advice to resident Indian children. Indian values are anyway under threat, curtsey TV serials, entertainment channels, movies, press, etc. Indian marriage and family system is a unique success in the world, and is being frowned upon by many J pigs, who are encouraging confusing episodes in the media for misleading children and youth into lust & greed.

No, it shouldn't be because a child learns his 'sanskar' or values from his home and if the family is very sure of its values and practices it at home, the child will atuomatically inculcate them in his lifestyle too. Outside influence comes later.

It is tough indeed, because the environment in which the NRIs spend their lives is totally different from the environment in India which influences the values, customs and habits.

Yes. It is becoming difficult even in India nowadays. It may not be in the best interest of the child to bring him up totally with Indian values. he/she will get confused as their society follow different values. they will also be isolated from their friends in teenage. Besides what is the chance that an NRI child is going to come back and live in India. Best to concenrate on making them good human beings

Its doesnt matter it's NRI or resident Indian it depends upon parents & child attitude. From metros to rural areas of India we can find teenager wearing exposing out fits & adopting western culture relations in the name of broad-minded thinking. I know many NRI teenagers bound to Indian tradition& values.

Yes it is because the children say we are born here and are the citizens of this country.
