Week 1: Beyond Self-Esteem, Beyond Love
If building self-esteem is the answer, why isn’t it working? If moral love will fix all the problems, why isn’t it working? Discover the answers to these difficult questions as Rabbi Friedman addresses the controversial issues of why love isn’t enough.
Week 2: Why is Discipline Necessary?
Discipline discourages doing what’s wrong; positive reinforcement encourages doing what’s right.
Learn the two kinds of discipline: A) Not allowing bad behavior, B) Not allowing sloppy goodness. E.g. Police Officer vs. Drill Sergeant.
Week 3: Raising Pleasure
Child-raising refers to the quality of pleasure that one pursues.
Rabbi Friedman will reveal how we can help a child develop a pleasure in finer things and raise a child to find the pleasure in what’s proper.
Week 4: When a child chooses a different path, does it mean you failed? What constitutes success?
“Cast your bread upon the waters, for in the length of days you shall find it.” Educating children is like planting seeds.
Some seeds blossom quickly, some slower. In some climates things grow faster, in some climates slower. We must have confidence in the teachings, “in the length of days” we will see results.
