I've blogged previously about how we've done Bat Barakah Blessings for my niece's 13th birthdays. In my own household we also started blessing our children on their birthdays several years ago. We ask their grandfathers to speak a blessing over them, or if they can't be there (one of them is about 8 hours away) they email it to us and Daddy speaks it over the child.
As great as they are, the festivities and food fade away and the gifts are outgrown. But the blessing of a father endures a lifetime.

What about you? How and when do you pass on blessings to your children?
