Overview

Raising a Child with Soul: How Time-Tested Jewish Wisdom Can Shape Your Child's Character by Slovie Jungreis-Wolff

With the seemingly insurmountable pressures placed on families today, many parents lack the spiritual foundation and practical knowledge to chart a clear-cut course in child-rearing. Parents question whether nurturing their children's souls is even possible in the fast-paced materialistic culture in which we live. Utilizing the insight that springs from her knowledge of Torah wisdom, her personal experiences and the experiences of those she has counseled, Slovie Jungreis-Wolff, a longtime parenting coach and advisor to young couples and families teaches in detail how to approach the entire gamut of issues, with a special emphasis on strengthening the child's morality and character. Parents will learn how to:

• Instill simchas hachayim, "true joy," in their children

• Value chessed, kindness, in a self-absorbed world

• Create a mikdash me'at, a home filled with calm and reflection

• Teach children gratitude and appreciation

• And much more…

From discipline to sibling rivalry to effective communication skills, Raising a Child with Soul offers unique concepts and pragmatic ideas that can be understood and applied to both Jewish and non-Jewish households.
