Torah education for children of any age is a crucial matter.
If we are to instill in our children a true appreciation for
the ideals of Torah, every step on the road to learning must
be dealt with wisely. Questions, attitudes and opinions, when
proposed by a child, must be responded to differently than when
proposed by a teenager. What a child learns at home from his
parents will greatly influence his/her attitude about himself
and others. The thrust of each child's education begins in their
home, not in school. Therefore, it is up to each parent to be
an appropriate role model in behavior and action for his/her
child. It is imperative that parents be honest and admit when
they don't have an answer to their child's question. As well,
we should praise our children when they make the right choice
in their own behavior. Just as important is the parents role
in choosing the best environment for their child's education.
This should be well thought out and if additional guidance is
needed, parents should not hesitate.
In this section we will post articles responding to the many
conflicts which children and their parents encounter. Through
these articles we want to show students and parents that learning
Torah can be a truly enjoyable activity. As our Gemara teaches,
learning Torah is the most beneficial pursuit.
We invite your questions and solutions, whether you are a
student, or a parent.
