Disciplining children


"To nibble at sweets, to take pins, a pen, pieces of paper or ribbons, to read a book without the owner's permission, these things - which are properly theft - are often done by children unwittingly. You to whom a childish soul is entrusted must therefore watch over it, accustom it in its small world to justice, and it will surely practice it in the larger world."

(Rav Shimshon Raphael Hirsch, Horeb, paragraph 343)

Have a great day,
