How do I wire power to more than one light switch?

Electrical Question from Ellis about Circuit Wiring
[ad#block]Question: When there are lights only and no receptacles on a circuit how can light switches stay hot. Currently I have all the lights being controlled by the first switch on the circuit. Once I switch it off there is no power to the other switches. The source came from the panel box to the switch then to the light then I connected 14/2 from the light to the next switch for power. Each time I switch the power off from this switch the entire circuit has no power. Please explain What I need to do to get power to the remaining circuit
