  1. it’s amazing how each of your pep talks reflects exactly what I need on each specific week! it’s as if you came to visit my home and directed your insights to what you found there! thank you

  2. I learned a lesson a few years ago that when I feel like i’m stuck in the mud I need to know that this is where Hashem wants me right now and to be happy. Now you have completed the lesson for me. Thank you!

  3. So powerful. Rather than running away from a painful situation, if we can give our children the tools to cope it will strengthen them for the future. Some parent go overboard to rescue a child and also prevent the child from learning to take responsibility for how they contribute to a problem. Parents want to have their child excused for poor behavior rather than having them take the consequences. Our interpretation of a situation can have an impact on how the child views it. Are we telling the child,”Poor thing, your teacher is too strict and unforgiving.” Or are we saying, “That is sad that you had to lose recess, (or whatever other punishment/consequence) maybe next time you will think before you … to see if that is the right thing to do.”
