Being a parent - a never-ending job

Does your responsibility as a parent ever end? I have two daughters, both happily married and mothers of 4 - and they are wonderful mothers and wives. However, they remain my daughters, and that will never change. I love them, I trust them... and I worry - as all parents do. I am very lucky in that my daughters are truly wonderful and comprehend that I need to worry sometimes, and comment sometimes  - and understand that it does not indicate that I don't love or trust them, but rather only indicates how much I care.

    Even when your children have children of their own,
    you should continue to serve as a role model,
    whose behavior your children can emulate.

    Never speak Lashon HaRa or Nibul Peh
    in front of your children, even when they have
    children of their own.


    Even when your children have children of their own,
    let them see you learning the Parshat HaShavua
    and attending Beit HaKnesset

    “...as a rule, religious Jews are more committed
    to Jewish survival. One recent example:

    During the height of the Palestinian terror,
    while secular Jewish organizations cancelled
    their youth trips to Israel, the Orthodox did not.

    “Whilst the Israeli Defense Forces are not
    perfect, the obsession of focusing on them
    despite being the most moral and professional
    army in the Middle East is very strange.”
