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!
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!Dr. Yael Respler
