“For My Children? Only the Best!”

Autoplay

“For My Children? Only the Best!”

Parents are never satisfied to provide their children with the minimum, or even the average. For their own needs a father or mother might settle for less, but for their children they want only the greatest and the best they can provide. If this is so with food and clothing, which are quite temporary, how much more so when it comes to a child’s spiritual education, which impacts the rest of his or her entire life.

“For My Children? Only the Best!”
Disc 90, Program 360

Event Date: 30 Av 5742 - August 19, 1982

Parents are never satisfied to provide their children with the minimum, or even the average. For their own needs a father or mother might settle for less, but for their children they want only the greatest and the best they can provide. If this is so with food and clothing, which are quite temporary, how much more so when it comes to a child’s spiritual education, which impacts the rest of his or her entire life.

The school you choose now is where your child will spend the next ten months of his or her life. Even if you feel, based on the current situation, that the religious level of your current school is sufficient, remember that your child will spend many long months there, and will likely want to continue there the following year.

This matter requires most serious contemplation, and one must not allow the cost of tuition to be the determining factor. One might save a few dollars now, but it may catch up with him later, G-d forbid, when the child grows into adulthood – for the way the child is educated now determines the kind of adult he or she will be.
