Garden of Education
Author: Rabbi Shalom Arush
Education With Love
Would you believe that it's possible to raise well-adjusted, successful and happy children without raising your voice or raising a finger on the child? Rabbi Shalom, after showing us the way to succeed in so many other areas of life such as marriage and finances, now shows us the way to success in child-rearing. His method, built around positive reinforcement and educating with love, demonstrates the proper way to establish clear boundaries without reprimanding or upsetting the child. First of all, as Rav Arush stresses throughout the book, parents must correct themselves before they correct their children. If the father is a Haman, he cannot expect to raise a Mordechai.
This book is a great read, written in clear and comprehensible style. It's a must for every parent.
