I am a stay at home mother with two toddler children. It has been challenging raising and disiplining both. I want you to know that I have tried everything! and I have consulted a lot of different resources, But this lecture has been THE MOST informative, straight forward lecture about parenting that I have ever heard. thank you for teaching me to look into myself and into my children before saying yes or no. (I say no alot) from here on I vow to not be a 'lazy' disiplinary. thank you for the instruction. Your daughter is right, you are very good at what you do and you are truly meant for the work you do. Be ever so blessed!!!!!!!!!!!! Reply

Clarity Thanks Sarah Esther for firstly simplifying a book that requires more focus than what I have been able to muster to date! And secondly for the real life examples that gave the inspiration the integration! It leaves one with a deeper sense of clarity and grasp. Reply

Grandparents are not Kosher My almost 4 year old just got back from visiting my dad and step mom who are not kosher. (He came with me and they got kosher food for the visit.) He has very upset that Grandpa is not kosher. What do I say? I can't explain how he grew up Orthodox then dumped it as a teenager and now I came back-its too complicated. Any suggestions? He is starting to learn what is kosher and what is not and kept asking my dad “Is that kosher, is that dairy?” etc…. :) Reply

listen to your kid The class was very informative. I think the mom teaching it could help herself more by listening to what her 9 year old really said: she may feel neglected; maybe. maybe i'm wrong!

You are so blessed to have kids. Your time with them is infinitely more important than any teaching. Reply

Fantastic!!! I loved every minute of this class. I honestly didn't think I would have the attention span to get through a whole hour - but I was absolutely captivated from the beginning. Sara Esther, after years of "reading you" it was such a pleasure to watch you. Your material was so relevant, and your honesty is so refreshing and relatable. You are beautiful on the page and even more beautiful on the screen. Thank you so much - That was a big boost to my mothering. Looking forward to seeing more of you! Blessings. Reply
