As the founder and principal of a prominent yeshiva, Darchei Noam of Monsey, and the Director of Agudath Israel’s Project Y.E.S., Rabbi Yaakov Horowitz is a greatly-respected veteran counselor and commentator. In Living and Parenting he writes with uncompromising directness and clarity about the challenges and rewards of contemporary parenting.
Based on Rabbi Horowitz’s popular columns and articles, this book offers practical guidance and explores a wide range of hurdles that parents and educators must surmount as they nurture well-adjusted children with allegiance to Torah, maturity, accountability, and responsibility.
In addition to addressing general issues in the areas of child rearing and education, this book is filled with reasoned and reasonable advice and solutions – answers that can quite literally redirect a youngster’s course from pending collision to stellar success. Rabbi Horowitz deals with real-life situations, addressing them with his unique blend of sensitivity, pragmatism, creativity, and bluntness.
