Mrs. Swerdlov (today) finished up a 4 part series at Shalhevet oday about the same topic and Atara Malach also gives a workshop on the Sandwich generation. It can be sticky sometimes taking care of yourself, your parents, your children at home, and trying to be there for your marrieds and their kids. I for one am happy people are addressing the situation and giving us tools on how to cope better.
I also don’t post often, but I check in a lot just to see what’s happening and read opinions. It also confuses me when the post doesn’t stay on topic it somehow always ends up in shidduchim….but I still enjoy the cr!!! I sort of miss feivels posts.
i noticed that my left handed students are more comfy using spiral or composition notebook and i make allowances for them even though the course requires a looseleaf. the kids over the years had said the the looseleaf rings hurt them while taking notes.

@watermelon I heard that at one of her lectures and everytime I’m annoyed I start cleaning and think of her. Better to take out my aggrivation on my walls then on pple. but I still hate doing laundry. everything about it. The up and down to the machines, the folding, the ironing….but it’s gotta get done.
speaking of yichus…would anyone make a shidduch for the following ppl
There’s Avraham Avinu: He seems to be frum but he’s really a BT and his father made idols. not out type?next
Yitzchak Avinu : Well his grandfather made idols, and there was all that nastiness with Lot and his half brother is an arab.
Yakov Avinu: His great grandfather made idols, his brother went of the derech, his mother comes from a very treyfe family, and he wasn’t shomer negiah with rachel imenu before they were married and he spent a lot of time with his uncle who’s mamash a rasha.
Yosef Hatzadik: His mother had an idol once and she died early, plus he’s a slave and his brother didn’t like him, must be something in that and with all the issues with Avraham Avinu and Yitzchak and Yaakov Avinu?better not to.
Moshe Rabbeinu: Oy, what a Maaseh!!!! His parents separated, then they got back together, his parents abandoned them, put him in a basket, he was raised by goyim?.not our type for sure. He may be close to Hashem but his background is so problematic?We wouldn?t want him in our family.
Dovid HaMelech: Descendants from a geyoret, not our kind of people. Sure a few generations have gone but all things being equal shouldn’t we look for someone with a more jewish backround.
Shlomo HaMelech: See above.. And his mother’s marriage was very dubious, he is rich though but the yichus and family backround is very tricky.

parenting with love and logic is great. and I fouond 123 magic very helpful for discipline. love and logic covers everything, avtive listening empathy etc… 1,2,3 magic is basically broken down into 2 parts stop behaviors and start behaviors ex: stop behavior, tantrums, back talk any thing you want them to stop doing. Start behaviors are cleaning up bed time, homework. for me using the 2 books together I found made a world of difference. I also loved miriam levi more effective jewish parenting. and you can call the chazak hotline 718-258-2008 they have classes on parenitng and inspirational stories as well
address lights are also a good idea. If you don’t have them when waiting for hatzoloh send someone outside to wait for them.
when I was in the 8th grade many yrs ago someone had mimcked a teacher during davening. This teacher was absolutely sure it was me. For once I wasn’t the one who did it. BUt the teacher refused to believe me. Later that day the Rosh Yeshiva pulls me out of class takes me into the office and tells me to fess up. so I reply It wasnt me. His answer was ” you did it, I know you did it, and nothing you say or do can change my mind” I was shocked but being in the 8th grade pushed it aside and went back to being a kid. On nights when I couldn’t sleep my mind would always jumo back to that incident many yrs ago I just couldnt shake it. I ran into the Rosh Yeshiva a few yrs ago and he asked how I was and I told him that the false accusation had stayed with me all these yrs. and I wasnt surprised that he didnt believe me but I was shocked that as a Rosh Yeshiva, Lamdan, Parent, Human he was so quick to accuse and condemn AND he wasnt even there when it happened. He apologized, not that I needed it but on night when I can’t sleep I don’t even think about that day. He might not apologize, he might not even acknowledge you, however if you let go you might achieve peace of mind on your pwn part regardless of his reaction. Hatzlacha.

encouragement has to come from the heart especially with teens ie: saying something nice to a teen just to make them feel good but somehow it feels forced. Kids see right through it. So find a specific behavior/action and then give the compliment like….Soraleh your picture is beautiful I especially like the way you stayed in the lines as opposed to Soroleh you color the best!! see the diff. She knows she might not be the best and you now made a fool of yourself. Shmuel Hanavi said it best intention is everything
i know that toys are very expensive in israel, maybe you could find an organization that distributes toys to needy or sick children. What we buy in the USA for $5 in amazing savings can cost as much as $50 in Israel. I send my good condition toys to Israel when I can.
buyer beware not all p3’s are created equal so please take a good look at your child and what they need before choosing a p3 for them. and a lot of the time you are responsible for finding your own p3 if you dont like the ones that are in school. the board of ed does not help with that. Also a tip abot p3’s you have the right to break down your hours betweeen as many p3’s you want. for example If i get 5 hours a week and the p3 only comes to school mon-thurs my child is still due the hour I have the right to find someone else to fill in that other hour. and you are allowed to photocopy the setts form keep the original white out the amount of hours and fill it in per p3. as long as you don’t exceed the amount of time alotted by the board of ed.
yiddin was also taken from some european 70’s group dgenghis khan i think was the original song

not a gourmet chef it’s just years of cooking on a budget. after a while you start to get the hang of it and it get a lot easier.
shakshuka, mashed potatoes with fried onions, onion rings with crushed bran flakes as the coating, grapefruit flambe sprinkle grapefruit with sugar and burn the top, apple sliced with pb, baked apples, rice pudding.
torahmom – I also wanted a smart phone with no data plan. I had called around and they would only give me the phone with the data plan until I stated that I wear glasses and wanted the blackberry not for internet but for the size and T mobile was willing to sell me the phone and connect it without a data plan because of (this is their term not mine) a visual impairment, sprint or verizon wouldn’t do it. Good luck

IMHO if you really think that 1st girl is for you, find out if she’s still interested. and if so ask her out. Take a chance. I did and it worked out for me. You’ll never know until you try, and if you don’t try you’ll always wonder.
my daughter was always a good eater. When she turned two she started shoveling food in her mouth like a squirrel & holding it there forever. She either took forever to eat it, or chewed it til it became a golf sized ball of mush and I needed to remove it from her mouth. In my situation it turns out she needed speech therapy and the therapist said that hoarding food in he mouth was common and can be remidiated with therapy. It really helped. My daughter is turning three soon and majoriy of he time she eats normally, I guess the few times she holds it in her mouth she might be wanting to save it for later.
haifagirl….Why the attack on Sherries grammar. She posted a beautiful story that touched her life and all you can see is grammatical errors! Looks like grammar isn’t the only thing wrong in the frum community.

I have a general rule for the most part I will not open the dor when my husband is not home but if they’d like to leave an envelope/pushka they are more than welcome to and I will look it over and then decide what to send to whom. And I don’t know where you live but no choshever rabbis come knocking on my door.
demosthenes – lets say the girls decide to wait til twenty to date (which i think is a good idea regardless) who says these boys will want them and not someone younger

ames: pple can buy whichever name they please but why do we feel the need the buy designer bags w/ the name on the outside not all designer bags have huge flashy logos so basically what i am saying and i am including myself as well is that women feel good to have nice things but why do we need to flash the name? does it make us feel any better? am i sharper if i buy the chanel bag with the huge emblem or a ferragamo bag with a tiny one? and in terms or jewelry it’s a better buy than designer clothing/bags b/c theres no wear and tear. more for your dollar
