Parents have to....

I really enjoyed the article and you clarified everything in a way that gives us strength as chassidim to have true kabalos ol.
I feel that most people who are against the inyen of kabbalos ol are traumatized by their upbringing were people abused the term.
Growing up my parents would lovingly tell us this is our way, you are making Hashem so happy ect.

Thank you
