Respecting Our Children: A Reader Reacts

Respler-Yael

Dr. Yael, people always write to you about their problems and sometimes complain to you about your ideas. But I think you are amazing, and that this column was powerful. I’m grateful to The Jewish Press and to you for publishing it. And as you always write: hatzlachah!

Dear Fan:

Thank you for your lovely and positive letter. Although I had input in part of the answer, my daughter, Dr. Orit Respler-Herman, was the one who actually came up with the idea of role- playing and added the suggestion of what parents should teach their children to say when someone cuts in front of them.

My 11-year-old son, who told me that older people always cut in front of him, also loved this idea. Exercising our suggestion, he now reports that no one cuts in front of him when he runs errands for me.

You seem to have a great attitude with outstanding organizational skills – as well as a wonderful husband. This certainly makes life’s challenges much easier. I wish you hatzlachah as you raise your special family!

Interestingly, sometimes people who have a very high self-awareness may experience intense reactions to circumstances that others might respond to more mildly.

The lemonana was something else. Never had we seen a green drink look so enticing.

On his marriage, he wrote: “This is what I believe: something of the core, of the essence of this meaningful and life-affirming Judaism will not be absent from our home” (1882).

With the recent kidnapping by the Hamas and the barbaric murder of three children – Gilad Shaar, Eyal Yifrach and Naftali Frankel, we believe that the best answer to honor the memory of those murdered is to continue building those very communities – large and small – that our enemies are trying to destroy.

Written entirely through Frayda’s eyes, the reader is drawn by her unassuming personality.

Adopting an ancient exegetical approach that is based on midrashic readings of the text, thematic connections that span between various books of the Bible are revealed.

Certainly today’s communication via e-mail, Facebook, Twitter and the like, including the ubiquitous Whatsapp, has reduced the need to talk with people and communicate at length.

I was called to the principal’s office and shown a picture my daughter had drawn.

“Where was this guy when I was dating?”

We must be honest about whether this shidduch “crisis” is self-made, and how much of it is really a crisis at all.

Being a teacher requires more than just knowing the material.
