The Orthodox Union Department of Community Engagement, Challahcrumbs.com and Parentingsimply.com will present a “Lunchbreak Parenting Webinar — Pesach: How to Raise Helpful and Respectful Children, Wednesday, April 2, at 12 noon EDT. The webinar is the third part of a series of four pre-holiday sessions directed at young parents with the first webinar preceding Chanukah.
According to Hannah Farkas, program manager of the OU Department of Community Engagement and coordinator of the webinar, “This program will provide tools for parents to relay proper middot (manners and morals) to their children, important skills for all children to learn just in time for the holidays.”
The first part of the program will feature Adina Soclof, MS CCC-SLP, Director of Parent Outreach for A+Solutions, who facilitates workshops such as “How to Talk So Kids Will Listen and How to Listen So Kids Will Talk.” Adina explains, “The two complaints I hear most often are “Kids don’t help out at home anymore” or “Kids are so disrespectful these days!” In this class we are going to explore some simple ways to help our kids help us and teach them respectful behavior, just in time for Pesach.”
The second portion of the webcast will be led by Devorah Levine Katz, MSW and mother of five, who has focused on education for the past decade. Devorah shares,“We’re exploring ways to make the Hagaddah come alive and ways to involve your kids in the weeks leading up to Pesach. We’re focusing on how to make your seder kid-friendly!”
