This week's parsha is Parshas Vayikra, the title of which comes from the word "to call". While the parenting tips and tools that we've been learning here from Eydl Reznik's wonderful installments often come from many aspects of the Parsha, I thought it was interesting to note that this week's lesson is referred to in the title of the Parsha itself. So, in essence, we as parents are being called upon to do our very best to make our children feel loved and wanted, and to help boost their self esteem wherever possible. And guess what, you can do that by simply calling a child by his name, and using his name on loving notes and other types of things you might post around the house. Simple right? Take a few minutes to read this week's installment and gain some really valuable insight about the power of a name.
