Well, it used to be.
I admit. As much as I’d love to be one of those “media-free” moms, my phone somehow lands in the hand of my 5 year old son on a nightly basis. Family whatsapp videos, funny forwards, (and whatever else he clicks!) keep my son entertained and happy while I catch up on laundry, supper, and everything else it takes to run a household. Hey, don’t wrinkle your nose, I’m sure I’m not the only one!
While it was an effective solution, I always felt bad. “What are you filling your son’s mind with?”, my mother’s guilt constantly berated.
Until three weeks ago.
At my son’s curriculum night, a fellow mom mentioned how ecstatic her son was that he was featured in a Maor video. “What’s Maor?” I naively asked. “Your kids don’t watch it nightly?”, she responded. “You’ve been missing out!”
Indeed I was. That very night I signed up for Maor Kids and began receiving the most adorable, bite size, kid friendly videos of the Rebbe I’ve ever seen.
My phone now performs in 4D. The depth and richness in each video is astounding. Instead of being a tool for entertainment and killing time, my phone is turning my kids into stronger Chassidim!
My kids now beg me to watch… a video of the Rebbe! They can drift off to sleep with happy, positive images in their minds and strengthen their connection.
It’s kinda crazy – my 5 year old is quoting sichos! Thanks to the little Maor cartoons and story narrations, my kids completely understand what they hear and feel like the Rebbe is speaking directly to them.
The videos make the adult in me engage and focus on the Rebbe. As I cook dinner and help with HW, I tune in to the background noise and can learn an entire sicha!
Nowadays, my mother guilt kicks in when I neglect to show my kids the latest video!
But don’t take my word for it. Sign up and try it out for yourself. You’ll be glad you did.
Oh, and please support this amazing organization with their upcoming Charidy campaign so that hundreds of kids can continue accessing this amazing tool!
They only have 48 hours and we need to help them continue.
