I once witnessed a guy treat his elderly father the way some people treat their kids. It was rather heartbreaking to see the father’s actions come back to bite him. This specific incident took place in a shul. Watch out for your kids. They’re gunnin’ for ya’June 12, 2012 3:49 am at 3:49 am #879537popa_bar_abbaParticipant

Hey Doped Up (got any extra?)
I would like to add something I heard about kids which I thought was a great saying.
“Spoil your kids a little. Life has a way of balancing things out later on.”
Also, great name, Doped Up….the pharmaceutical companies want meds to be added to the list of staples like milk, eggs, and bread.June 12, 2012 3:09 pm at 3:09 pm #879540WolfishMusingsParticipant
I believe a far bigger determinant of how a child will treat his elders when he grows up is how he sees his parents treat *their* parents and elders.

Treat your kids nicely because they will choose your nursing home.June 13, 2012 3:05 am at 3:05 am #879542
Ok, I’ll tell you.
So I davened in a nursing home this past week and watched a guy “take care” of his elderly father. First he covered his father with the tallis and said make a bracha. then all through davening he kept turning the pages for him and waking him up and making him daven. he even grabbed his father’s arm, touched it to the torah and shoved it in his father’s face. “here totty, kiss the torah”. All through davening. nudging nudging nudging.
It was abit heartbreaking to see the father’s actions come back to bite him. The son got him back nice for all those shabbosos when he was a kid. “Here little moishy daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven, daven.”June 13, 2012 5:24 pm at 5:24 pm #879543SayIDidIt™Participant
