Educating children


"Teach and guide a child in a manner consistent with his nature, and then he will not stray from that path as he ages.

"Should you force him against his nature, he will listen to you now out of fear, but later he will leave that path when your yoke is removed from his neck. He cannot change his nature."

(Rabbi Eliyahu Kramer, "Vilna Gaon," to Proverbs 22:6)

Have a great day,
