R abbi Saks talks with Rabbi Dr. Barry Kislowicz about his new book “Parenting in Perspective: Timeless Wisdom, Modern Applications” (Maggid Books, 2016).
Some families are blessed with child after child who makes them proud.
Others seem to face challenges with their children at every turn.
What separates those who struggle from those who succeed?
Rabbi Dr. Barry Kislowicz believes that a large part of the answer lies in the perspective we bring to parenting. In Parenting in Perspective, Rabbi Kislowicz draws on psychological research and Torah ideals to provide an insightful framework for truly putting our kids at the center. Exploring how parents can inspire and guide their children in areas ranging from morals and mitzvot to the nuanced interactions of day-to-day life, this book aims to help parents develop a deeper understanding of their children while strengthening the parent-child relationship. This thoughtful approach is then brought to bear on the most challenging areas of parenthood, such as effective discipline and managing the teenage years.
