This book is a must-read! "If your child has the talent to be a baker, don't ask him to be a doctor." Ahhhh, wise, wise words!!! Wendy Mogel shares this important Hasidic teaching, along with pages and pages of sage advice on how to raise self-reliant children.
Know your children. Know who they really are, not who you want them to be. Help them live authentically by helping them understand their strengths, weaknesses, talents, etc.
Personally, I think you should run, don't walk, to get your copy of BLESSING OF A SKINNED KNEE by Wendy Mogel now! If you've already read it, what was your your best "take away?"
