The Things That Really Matter to Us By Rabbi Chaim Walder (527 Pages)Publisher: Feldheim, 2010
As an experienced educational counselor and prolific author, Rabbi Chaim Walder has dealt extensively with relationships between children and parents, students and teachers - as well as a person's relationship with himself. Drawn from the author's vast knowledge and flavored with his engaging literary style, this book bursts with a wealth of information, ideas and advice, along with practical suggestions for applying them. Culled from more than a thousand articles written during the author's almost two decades as a Yated Ne'eman columnist, Rabbi Walder tackles the issues that are foremost on people's minds.
An expert on parent-child relationships, here Rabbi Walder offers perspective and wisdom on such topics as building self-esteem in your children, identifying and understanding attention disorders, nurturing trust and dealing with sibling rivalry. But far from being only a parenting manual, this book contains the building blocks for every area of life--finances, challenges, emotional and physical health, and so much more. A wide-ranging read, sensitively written and incredibly down-to-earth, this is more than a book--it's a treasure trove!
