The first step:

Stop using ‘rebellion’ as a stand-in for autonomy!!
Stop making it ‘us’ parents vs. ‘them’ rebels!!

With all due respect to the panelists – please speak to some parents and adult children who have maintained mutual love and RESPECT for one another!

The second step:
February 28, 2021 5:45 pm

Define ‘religious’ – honestly, is it about G0d or is it about community??
Please recognize that the ‘religious’ parents just sin differently from their ‘rebellious’ kids.

If we can keep these ideas uppermost in the discussion, we might get somewhere.

And, perhaps the most important of all is this!

You must, absolutely must, address the huge hypocrosies among ‘religious’ people. You cannot, absolutely not, talk about bridging a gap when kids say that they won’t live a kind of life where they see hypocrisy reign supreme. And, you absolutely cannot try to mitigate or dismiss or in any way justify what wrong even when it’s in the name of ‘religion.’
Let’s hope that these issues, or a start, will be addressed head-on.

Let’s not judge ‘religious’ just by religiosity of ritual. Let’s judge ‘religious’ also by basic human behaviour that the Torah demands. After all, two sides to the Luchos. We should no more call the one who’s not keeping Shabbos ‘rebbelious’ as the one who is so envious of his neighbor that he bears him ill will as rebellious. Which one is the religious one??
