Jewish Parenting

What should you do when your son refuses to go to Hebrew school? Or when your daughter asks you about God? Should you teach your children about the Holocaust?

Jewish parenting is full of special challenges and opportunities. Wouldn’t it be helpful to share thoughts and ideas with other parents?

Discussion boards have sprung up all over the web to provide support for Jewish parents. Here’s a sampling of discussion boards for Jewish parents:
