The Hayom Yom for chof-beis Teves urges parents to spend a half-hour each day considering the chinuch of one’s children and “to do everything in his power – and beyond his power – to inspire children to follow the path along which they are being guided.” Being a parent is entirely absorbing. It’s an identity, an occupation and a mission. There is always more to learn, and we can all benefit from encouragement and inspiration.
