    Pesach Help: Boys and Girls

    From the COLlive Inbox: My boys and girls are back from Yeshiva and school. You'd expect them to lend a hand and help out with all the Pesach preparations. Well, not this year. Full Story

    #14 Well Said!!!

    Your problem did not start today.
    Help is not just expected from children on Erev Pesach.
    In my house, we have jobs every Erev Shabbos and every Moitzei Shabbos. . If you wait till Erev Pesach to teach your kids they need to help, well, sorry but you then are really setting yourself up for failure and you are a bit too late……
    However, you can start now to teach your kids, this is all of our families’ house and we all share in the responsibility to make this our special HOME!!!
    If this does not work, seek proffesional parenting help.

    Good Luck!!!

    I can’t help but notice the large amount of comments from brhs students, who seem to sincerely believe that their pre-Pesach break is meant for them to relax from school! Am I the only one thinking that there’s something a bit off here? When are the mothers supposed to get a break from their regular household duties? Maybe this year we should all be “going on break” because we’re all so overworked. Pesach? oh ya, it’ll get done – by those magic elves…. aka – the mothers on whom the responsibility ultimately falls, and who will stay up late, and… Read more »

    first off, don’t make it sound like ALL girls don’t help and ALL boys do. but i think both parent and studant are right. i’m out of high school already, but believe me it’s tough! but, studants have to understand that they’re not off for “spring break” they’re off for pesach, and that includes the full package (cleaning, cooking, setting up, seving, etc. ) being that they were off already a week, and didn’t do much, that should be enough of a relaxing break, and at this point it’s time to get up and help!!! but , parents please don’t… Read more »

    Some suggestions from experience

    1) Let them catch up on their sleep. Letting them sleep in always pays off. 2) They need to understand that they are given extra time off school in order to help get ready for Pesach. Pesach is a time when everyone in the family is expected to help out. 3) Give them advance notice of what will be expected from them. At the beginning of the week give them a general idea of what will be getting done that week and every night what will be getting done the next day. 3) Give them a list of several big… Read more »

    I remember being in hs and e/o had to go shopping when vacation started, I remember having to help when my “vacation ” started. I did not resent it too much because Pesach is a family hoilday, and if you want pesach to happen, eveyone must chip in. And my mom took me shopping for clothes in between cleaning and cooking-it’s all possible There are 2 problems I see, 1. when i was in hs there were alot! of tests, but for some reason over the years the system has only gotten worse.

    I couldn’t agree with you more. Parents are so afraid to slap their kids these days, but I think it is very necessary. I think that is the reason for the failing school system AND the shidduch crisis. How long will it take for you guys to understand that hitting your kid is a good thing. Did you know that the Middah of Gevurah is not necessarily being tough and strict, rather it is a cap on Chessed.

    are these comments for real?

    wow! most of these comments are sooo judgemental! ( I guess this is too!!!) but some really went overboard critisizing the parents – that never helps anyone !!! I admit I have some kids who enjoy and offer to help and others who don’t enjoy and don’t offer and if they do their room I’m happy – and if they do anything else its a bonus!! I accept that like I accept their other idiosyncrasies and try to work on a pleasant atmosphere in the home and not put undue pressure on myself or others!!

    Hang up a list of things that still need to get done INCLUDING shopping for clothes and shoes. Put it in a very prominent place. Go about your day as calm as possible going from one thing to the next. Let them do what they want when they want and how they want, but be very clear about keeping to the list. there is NO shopping until…. gets done. It puts them in control and keeps you calm and everything will get done at the end. A kosherin freilichin Pesach to all. May we merit the coming of Moshiach BEFORE… Read more »

    yes pessach vacation is to relax form school and to help at hooem for pessach. that does not mean, mothers, that your kids need to have the responsability oor the strees, you ar in chrage of it, and they help you. and for those that surely need tima to relax and a break, what do you mean by a break. you wont need to study so many hours for next day test. we should all take pessach preparation not as a “ol” in its hebrew meaning, we left mitzraim laready, but rather make it fun, music, enjoy talking to ur… Read more »

    yes, i agree that we as high schoolers should help a lot more, and we dont do it enough, but just remeber-we have a whole few monhs of learning that we want to do, and even tho we do get a ‘break’ every afternoon, its usually filled with programs/chessed jobs/studying/helping in the house..and we want time to chill too! just keep it mind, pls! a FREILICHEN and kosher pesach!

    when someone asks for me help to prepare for pesach, i am there in a heart beat.
    and i am constatnly telling my married sibling whom i live near, that if his wife needs any help with the kids, or the cleaning, they should let me know and i will b there in a second.
    i to will spend up the full night b/4 pesach turning overmy kitchen, and i won’t complain.

    1. You could still be nice and help at least a little bit.
    2. It’s Chutzpidik to speak to a mother ”We came here to rest, not to clean.”

    These girls need a taste of reality. How about them sitting down & understanding from their parents that THEY don’t get to relax. My husband works 6 days a week. He NEVER gets vacation, because his vacation is Yom Tov…he only gets 2 weeks a year (that’s 10 working days.) He comes home at 7:30-8 every night, rushes to Maariv, eats & works until 1:30 AM. EVERY night. Then he wakes up @ 6 to go to shul & he’s so lucky, he gets to do it all over again the next day. It’s no surprise he crashes every Friday… Read more »

    Too much pressure on the kids

    A girl’s focus absolutely should be on helping around the home and learning the most important thing of all–how to run a good, yiddishe home and all that entails. Instead, while girls’ learning is vital and necessary, it’s become so full of pressure and so many tests and the whole purpose of school has become skewed. Now you’re left with girls who don’t have time or energy to help their mothers, or neighbors. Wake up yidden. Our chinuch system is severely flawed in many ways.

    My daughters high school teacher assigned a report for right after pesach. When the girls told their teacher that they have to help and wont have time to do it, she was really shocked. She couldn’t believe that the parents make their daughters help. She told them that their job was to be in school and be busy with school and the mothers shouldn’t ask or expect their help.
    In my opinion, this teacher should be fired!!!

And yes, i did assign something also – but I purposely made it due a week after Pesach, so they’ll have time to work on it after Pesach – I made sure to say that I do no… Read more »

    B’h Yes I have read and sympathize with the girls from Beis Rivka I do think the schools should be encouraging helping out at home less tests etc. Ultimatley however we have to start taking some responsibility as teenagers that is the first part of the maturing Process, own up, take action don’t play the blame game.

    LSTEN, AGREE, UNDERSTAND THEM, AND BE COMPASSIONATE.
    THEN OFFER THEM TO CHOOSE A DAY OFF FROM SCHOOL AFTER PESSACH WHEN IT WILL BE A REAL REST, AND LET THEM SLEEP THAT DAY.
    I AM SURE THEY WILL SENSE YOUR DESIRE TO UNDERSTAND AND COMPROMISE AND WILL HELP YOU THEN.

    It’s not sexist. It’s not about cooking and cleaning. Of course girls should receive an education, but when the education supercedes the teaching of the true purpose, that a woman should build and maintain a heilige yiddishe heim with preciuos kinderlach, then the education has lost perspective. This isn’t my opinion. This is explicitly written time after time after time by the Rebbe in Igros after Igros.

    Spelling and Grammar

    What has been posted by the Crown Heights High School girls (and their mothers) is quite terrible. These are not typos. These are really embarrassing mistakes (the word is not ‘alot’ – it’s ‘a lot’). I don’t mean to generalize, so I’m just assuming that every other Bais Rivka girl (hundreds of them) can spell and use grammar correctly.

    it is a big acharayois on their part. If the girls are indeed helping then excellent, but what if they are doing things that they shouldnt be? It”s a very long time to be off from school if they are not helping out.

    Hi,
    Well all i can say is read post #89.

    we all know BR is overworking the highschool girls (if you dont know it then either talk to some or go and work there)

    But take a look at a girl with her priorities straight and a family who is working together to achieve a goal. A girl who understands how hard her mother works to make eveyrhting perfect for her children.

    isnt that what pesach is all about?!?! FREEDOM. School is like mitzrayim, they make us work like slaves, then we are finally set free. All us girls are doing is enjoying our freedom. 🙂 its a miracle!

    I don’t usually comment on comments but I’m making an exception.

    You’re parents are lucky to have such a mature and level headed daughter.

    Have a wonderful Pesach and maybe afterwards your mother should give parenting classes in CH!

    Yasher Koach for doing the right thing.

    It’s slang when you don’t put an apostrophe when you’re suppose to. It’s a MISTAKE when you add them to words that don’t need them. It’s slang when you shorten words. It’s a MISTAKE when you have extra letters, which basically means you can’t spell.

    im the one who wrote #90 and if i had more vacation other than 3 days before pesach, i would totally help my mother more. there are enough boys in the community, both boys learning here and those who came home for pesach 2 weeks ago to go pack matzos
    and btw, in school we had 4 free periods in a row! now is THAT a waste of time??????

    a keli for the children to help their mother prepare for Pesach, will be greatly enhanced if the parents stay calm, no raised voices, a lot of smiling and many hugs

    COL is causing the Shidduch crisis. All I want to say is wether you are a freshman, sophmore, junior, senior, that its all cool, everyone should connect together, in response to #73 patching isn’t a bad thing, all of you Liberal Lubavitchers should go to Bunch of Bagels. Then you should order a whole wheat bagel and shave your beard with a solar powered shaver, after that you should take your Prius and move to San Fransisco. Then if you want you can become a Rabbi, even if you’re a girl! Because everybody is so sexist, like totally! Then you… Read more »

    my goodness! Have any of you ever read tanya. There is something called ATZLUS! That is the secret behind it… (not the derech eretz and chutzpah issues some ppl might think). For soem ppl, being active and helping full time is not as easy as for others. Yup, we learn on the go and you don’t ignore it. But please don’t blame anyone for it! Not the schools, not the tests, not the parents and not the daughters.

    I would like to compliment the Bais Rivka Seminary, the Bais Rivka High School, and the Lubavitch Meisivta of Chicago, the Miami Zal and the Zal in Detroit for being mechanech my children to be the perfect Pesach helpers and cleaners for my home and for Chabad. They do a great job, and always with a smile.
