ACVHIEVING SUCCESSFUL CHINUCH –
PRACTICAL TORAH ADVICE FOR RAISING WELL BALANCED CHILDREN
By Rabbi Chaim Morgenstern
Yiddish nachas is one of the greatest wishes of every Jewish parent
and preoccupies much of our lives. However, to borrow the Yiddish
expression, "Vu koift men dus?" – where do we buy it? There are no
easy answers or magic formulas.
The Jewish family and home are the cornerstones of our nation and the
primary means of transmitting the Jewish Heritage. This transmission from
parent to child, generally referred to as chinuch habanim, is one
of the most important careers and endeavors of our lifetime and one of the
areas in our family life that can always use improvement. Nevertheless, it
is most complicated, as the human personality is far more complex than the
most sophisticated electronic device or computer that will ever exist. The
only clear and strong guide is our Holy Torah, and what we derive from it
is the most reliable guide for understanding our children and ourselves.
