    All parents hope their child will be self-reliant, optimistic, and well mannered, but this has become particularly challenging in our current culture. Clinical psychologist and Jewish educator Wendy Mogel distills the ancient teachings of the Torah, the Talmud, important Jewish thinkers, and contemporary psychological insights into nine blessings that address key parenting issues.

    Overall

    Common sense stuff, but this book serves as a refreshing reminder of raising kids to be honorable citizens, not necessarily the super competitive, perfect-in-all person. Mogel mentioned that we cannot 2nd guess what skills kids will need in 20 years ([mine]just as 20 yrs ago, people didn't guess the importance of today's software engineering). So it maybe fruitless trying to raise kids to be super-generic, super-competitive beings while missing the "amazing show of childhood". On the otherhand, qualities such as honesty, good work ethics have serve people well for centuries in literally every field of arena.
