    What is going on in a child’s mind when they ask a question? Rabbi Harold Kushner tells the amusing story of the parent who wanted to provide sophisticated theological answers to his five-year-old son who had asked about God. The father explained how God wasn’t really a person, but was instead a spirit, a miraculous presence. A few minutes later the five-year-old came back to his father and said, “I got it. God is like Casper the Friendly Ghost.”

  5. A Jewish Approach to Discipline

    We've all been students in classrooms where a teacher makes remarks like the following:.

    “Somebody must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed this morning” or “I'm not surprised you forgot your homework. You'd probably forget your head if it wasn't attached to your shoulders” or “You have the lowest score in the class!” We cringe because we can imagine the hurt and embarrassment the remarks have caused. We may even be pained that in the past we said something similar to our students.
