If you are a parent or if parenthood is on your horizon, Rav Mattisyahu Salomon, the illustrious Mashgiach of the Lakewood Yeshivah, is speaking directly to you in the pages of this important book. In his inimitable, down-to-earth style, the Mashgiach shows that all well-meaning, loving parents have the ability to bring up happy children who follow in their footsteps. His ideas are based on fundamental principles outlined in the teachings of Chazal and the sefarim of the Rishonim and Acharonim, and they are enriched by discussions and experiences with gedolei Yisrael of the past fifty years.
The material in this book is drawn from a series of schmuessen the Mashgiach gave over a period of a year and a half. It was culled, arranged and adapted for print by Rabbi Yaakov Yosef Reinman, author of Shufra Dishtara and Abir Yosef al Hatorah, who has been learning b'chavrusa with the Mashgiach for many years. The collaboration of the Mashgiach's wisdom and eloquence and Rabbi Reinman's literary skills have produced an absolutely brilliant book.
"This volume is far and away the best chinuch book I have ever read," writes one reviewer. "It will change the face of Klal Yisrael for generations to come."
