Sons and daughters tell of their devotion, challenges, and successes in honoring their parents By Rabbi Yehuda Samet (Contribution by) Yehudis Samet (Author)
So many books about parenting. Finally - a book about our parents.
Everyone knows the importance ofkibud av va'eim. Honoring parents is one of the Ten Commandments, something that every Jewish child learns in school.
And then we grow up. Of course, we still want to be good sons and daughters. And yet, do we really understand how to fulfill this never-ending mitzvah — as adults?
Do we know how the Torah expects us, grownup children, to treat our parents? What about stepparents or in-laws? What are our financial obligations? How do we balance our own needs, and the needs of our family, with those of our parents? What happens when our parents divorce? Or if a parent has a difficult or abusive personality? Do we have to love our parents?
Rebbetzin Yehudis Samet, veteran educator and author of the classicThe Other Side of the Story, brings us a book that is a game-changer; or, rather, a life-changer. It's a tour-de-force that includes:
More than 170 stories of sons and daughters - of all ages - rising to the challenge ofkibud av v'eim
Strategies and common sense advice on dealing with the sensitive issues of "the sunset years"
Comprehensive and clear halachos ofkibud av v'eim
My Father, My Mother and Meis a must-read book for everyone.Because everyone is someone's child.
