In this week's Parsha, Parshas Beshalach, we learn about the experiences of the Jewish people as they traveled in the dessert on their way to Mt. Sinai, and how they reacted to their circumstances. This is an amazing story to discuss with our children as we explain to them why it isn't helpful to complain and demand. And if our children are too young to understand this example, then in any case, as with children of any age, we as parents need to learn how to gently steer our children away from negative behavior. I think you'll enjoy this one, it's to the point and something all of us can put into practice right away. You can do it, I started just a minute ago as a child was telling me something as I was typing!
