Importance of Sleep

We are jumping ahead in our series on “How to Be a Good Mother” today to a practical topic: the importance of sleep. It will amaze you how foundational it is –and how often today’s mothers overlook teaching good sleep habits. Whether you are a young mother, a mother of a teen, a student who wants to do well, or a grandparent who wants to preserve cognitive ability, you need this episode.

If you want the full series on “how to Be a Good Mother” please email me so I can notify you when it is available all together. info@greatshalom.org. As I often do, I am going to break up the series with other topics, so that we don’t bore any part of the audience staying too long on one topic that might not be applicable to them.

Next week we have a special treat: Dr. Lendell Braud is going to share with us her amazing and scientifically supported method for helping children who have been traumatized. You will want to hear it and be sure all your friends and neighbors do too!

The Center of all Character Development, All Religious Education

Homing down on the very center, the very essence of the first most important task of a good parent. We found, very surprisingly, last week that religious education was primary, because it was primary to call character foundation, which is foundational to anything else we might want to convey to our children. So, it that is so, what is the center, best, single most important thing we can convey in that religious education? I give it to you here.

It might be surprising. It might be shockingly familiar. However, it can not be controversial. It is the center of all of Christianity, and agrees with the center of Judaism. Further, while the outcomes agree with the desired outcomes of other good paths, the center is centered on the uniqueness of the message: grace.

You will want to hear this. The surprising, and almost never discussed center point of what being a good parent is.

How to Be a Good Mother

I finally tell you the root of good mothering. I know it is surprising. But it is good news that you know what to do first, how to evaluate the many conflicting ideas, and have confidence beyond yourself. Briefly proof over the centuries and across cultures that this works.
