You Must Have 9 Kids to Qualify

From my 3rd birth on, I would go straight with my newborn babies from the hospital to Beit Hachlama, the Recovery Home, a kind of hotel where postpartum women go to sleep a lot and share their birth stories over and over and eat lots of fantastic food (especially cheesecake) so they’ll return home stronger physically and emotionally to care for that newborn and that newborn’s siblings. In my childbearing days many moons ago (my youngest is turning 7 next week) the hospitals would give a free night at Beit Hachama as a gift to any...

We Are Not Raising Frum Children by Mrs. Yehudis Wolvovsky

Mrs. Yehudis Wolvovsky, shlucha to Glastonbury, CT and mother of a beautiful brood ka”h, reflects on the twists and turns her perspective on chinuch has taken over the years. Reposted from Anash.org I used to think that raising children was a simple equation. I would put in the work, teach the values and they would turn out as I wished. I used to think that parenting was about controlling my children’s behavior. If I made sure they behaved as I expected, then they would be good kids. Then I heard a quote of Mrs. Sara Kaplan, a veteran...

My Out-of-the-Box Kids

As an Orthodox mom of out-of-the-box kids living in a fairly cookie-cutter neighborhood, it’s easy for me to look around at my neighbors with their in-the-box kids and feel like I am failing as a frum mom. So when I heard this quotation from Superbowl-winning NFL coach Pete Carroll about the drawbacks of a pressured “fitting-in” culture, it gave me chizuk! The original quotation talked about coaches and players, but I have changed it around to apply to parents and our kids. Enjoy! “There’s no question that it’s...

What a Wife Says, What a Husband Hears

[I’ve been listening to the audiobook of Men are From Mars, Women are from Venus by John Gray and thought this phrase dictionary of what women say and what men hear was right on!] “We never go out” translated into Martian (the language of men) means “I feel like going out and doing something together. We always have such a fun time, and I love being with you. What do you think? Would you take me out to dinner? It has been a few days since we went out.” Without this translation, when a woman says “We never...

The Gift my Daughter Received

My daughter finished a course this week, and during the final class the instructor handed each student a gift: a word on a piece of paper that, she felt, captured the student’s essence. One student received the word: “Adventure.” Another: “Listening.” Another: “Dancing.” And my daughter? She received the word: Home. The teacher explained that she had chosen this curious word for my daughter because she is at home in herself. “And when I got that word,” my daughter told me, “I thought,...
