This week in Parshas Vayakhel, we learn one very important lesson as parents: make an effort to eat meals together as often as possible. Yes, children grow and often have their own schedules that don't work with the rest of the family, and this can indeed be a challenge, but do make every effort to sit down together as often as possible — this is what keeps the family unit alive, and the members of the family connected and content. Read this week's installment of Parsha Parenting, and you'll also learn about how the Jewish people have been following this advice for thousands of years. Often no small task today, but when concerned parents realize the extreme importance of sitting down together, they can certainly make it happen.
