"[Initially] Custom forms us all; our thoughts, our morals, our most fixed belief, are consequences of our place of birth [and what we are exposed to while growing up. However what we become throughout life should be the result of re-examining all that we think that we know and believe to allow our growing wisdom and insight to better inform our choices!!]" - Aaron Hill

"[Freedom, individualism and being yourself, so long as it doesn't hurt the physical person or property of another:] At all ages, but especially during the teen and young adult years, it takes courage to resist the temptation to be just like others. But it is only when we realize there is something special about us - just the way we are - that we are able to craft an authentic life." - Dr. Mardy Grothe

[Quote No.42557] Need Area: Friends > Children
"[Child education: The socio-economic and political philosophies of free-market Capitalism, mixed-market Socialism and planned-economy Communism can be seen on a spectrum from capitalism’s individual citizen’s responsibility to meet their own needs to the degree and in the way that they choose and that suits them within their capacity and Communism’s the state’s, or in other words the citizens’, collective responsibility to meet their collective needs to the degree and in the way that they collectively choose and that suits them within the group’s capacity. Socialism is a mix of the two. They are all different ways of structuring society – the social contract - to allow people to meet their needs and desires within society. They differ though in some ways including the involvement of government and the state and the types of freedom and equality – of authority or outcome - that are supported. The following gives a communist perspective on meeting child education and housekeeping needs:] The workers’ state must become wealthier in order that it may be possible seriously to tackle the public education of children and the releasing of the family from the burden of the kitchen and the laundry. Socialization of family housekeeping and public education of children are unthinkable without a marked improvement in our economics as a whole. We need more socialist economic forms. Only under such conditions can we free the family from the functions and cares that now oppress and disintegrate it. Washing must be done by a public laundry, catering by a public restaurant, sewing by a public workshop. Children must be educated by good public teachers who have a real vocation for the work. Then the bond between husband and wife would be freed from everything external and accidental, and the one would cease to absorb the life of the other. Genuine equality would at last be established... A certain advance towards the new family is possible even now. It is true that the state cannot as yet undertake either the education of children or the establishment of public kitchens that would be an improvement on the family kitchen, or the establishment of public laundries where the clothes would not be torn or stolen. But this does not mean that the more enterprising and progressive families cannot group themselves even now into collective housekeeping units. Experiments of this kind must, of course, be made carefully. [Free-market Capitalism’s individual responsibility and freedom also does not exclude people from freely choosing to work in a co-operative group. It only tries to ensure that it is done freely, that is without force, coercion or fraud, by individuals or groups, including government, whether a democratic majority or not.]" - Leon Trotsky
(1879 – 1940), born Lev Davidovich Bronshtein, he was a Russian Marxist revolutionary and theorist, Soviet politician, and the founder and first leader of the Red Army. He joined the Bolsheviks immediately prior to the 1917 October Revolution, and eventually became a leader within the Party. During the early days of the Soviet Union, he served first as People's Commissar for Foreign Affairs and later as the founder and commander of the Red Army as People's Commissar of Military and Naval Affairs. He was a major figure in the Bolshevik victory in the Russian Civil War (1918–20). He was also among the first members of the Politburo. After leading a failed struggle of the Left Opposition against the policies and rise of Joseph Stalin in the 1920s and the increasing role of bureaucracy in the Soviet Union, Trotsky was successively removed from power, expelled from the Communist Party, deported from the Soviet Union and assassinated on Stalin's orders. An early advocate of Red Army intervention against European fascism, Trotsky also opposed Stalin's non-aggression pact with Adolf Hitler in the late 1930s. As the head of the Fourth International, Trotsky continued in exile to oppose the Stalinist bureaucracy in the Soviet Union, and was eventually assassinated in Mexico, by Ramón Mercader, a Spanish-born Soviet agent. Trotsky's ideas form the basis of Trotskyism, a major school of Marxist thought that is opposed to the theories of Stalinism. Quote from his work, ‘Vodka, the Church and the Cinema (1923).

[Quote No.42633] Need Area: Friends > Children
"How to raise happy kids:- Did you ever notice how so many children today seem unhappy? No matter how much they have, no matter how hard you try to give them more, they never seem content. They should be the happiest kids who ever lived. They have traveled to islands, gone jeeping through the deserts of Israel, swam with dolphins, but there is a sense of discontent. There are children who have iPhones, iPads, wiis, Gameboys, American girl dolls, and basements filled with toys. Summer time brings talk of sleep away camp, shopping with long lists in hand or planning trips to faraway places. Even with the difficult economic situation, the reality is that we would rather do without ourselves than have our children feel as if they are lacking. Last week a father called me. He said that each summer he rents a home for his family in beautiful surroundings. It is a neighborhood where some people buy lavish homes, others rent. Even though he has always enjoyed their summer place, his 13-year-old daughter made it clear that she was unhappy. At 2 a.m. she decided to have a meltdown. ‘I am ashamed of the house we stay in every summer,’ she cried. ‘All my friends have much better houses, why can’t we? If we take this same house as always I don’t want any of my friends coming over. Don’t even think about inviting them!’ She stomped to her room and slammed the door, leaving her father hurt and perplexed. ‘I try so hard,’ he said to me. ‘What is she thinking? Doesn’t she see how much I sweat to make a buck?’ How do we combat the unhappiness? Of course there are many reasons our children act miserably. You can say it is awful chutzpah, too much stuff, absence of parental involvement, or deficient discipline. Others will say there is not enough one on one time, children who do not feel really accepted, a lack of self-esteem or just plain arrogance. We mistakenly believe that the more we give, the happier they’ll be. Wrong! But at the root of the misery lies a basic glaring lack of gratitude. When children are not cognizant of their blessings [of how much worse things could be], they do not begin to recognize how much they have. They overlook the good, both the big and the small, and they grow more entitled with each day. We mistakenly believe that the more we give, the happier they will be. Wrong. Instead, it is the more they appreciate, the happier they will grow. I explained to this father that it is time he sat down with his daughter and introduce her to the concept of ‘Dayenu’. On Passover we recount all of God’s many kindnesses. After each kindness we pause and say: ‘Dayenu – it would have been enough for us!’ We are encouraged to recognize each gracious act of giving and realize that every deed deserves thoughtful appreciation. We don’t take anything for granted. We stop and contemplate the blessing of enough [and that how wonderful it is that things aren’t worse]. I received an incredibly long list that had been drawn up for this 13 year old. Here’s part of the list: --We have a beautiful home. --We rent a lovely summer house in a gorgeous neighborhood. --We have traveled to Israel. --We have traveled to Paris. --We have traveled to Italy. --We have gone skiing in Utah. --We eat in delicious restaurants. --We have gone to Miami every Chanukah vacation since you were a baby. --We have celebrated your bat mitzvah with an amazing party. --We have sent you to sleep away camp since fourth grade. --We have a loving family. --We have grandparents who cherish us. --We have good health. After each line, the father wrote Dayenu. And then he explained to this child who had been blessed with more than she had ever understood (and more than most could ever imagine) that it was time to appreciate the blessings of that which we have, instead of focusing on that which we think that we are missing in life. There is one more missing link here – the presence of parents who live with the motto of Dayenu in their own lives. When children hear their mother or father constantly commenting on other people’s homes, enviously recounting the way others vacation, or having conversations about the expensive clothing and furniture that their friends seem to have, we are implanting the ugly roots of [ingratitude, bitterness,] discontent and unhappiness in our children’s hearts. How can we teach the blessing of enough when are days are spent wanting more and more? Unfortunately, these parents spent many hours bickering. But it is not only financially that we come up short in our minds. Somehow, in every conflict, this husband and wife each felt unappreciated. Both expressed frustration that their spouse was not doing their share. If I am always concentrating on what my spouse does not do instead of recognizing the good that he does, I end up destroying any potential for joy that I may have. My life becomes filled with negatives and I grow bitter and unhappy. Let us take the lesson of Dayenu to heart. It is time for us all to contemplate the blessing of enough [and that how wonderful it is that things aren’t worse]." - Slovie Jungreis-Wolff
She is a freelance writer, and a relationships and parenting instructor. She is the daughter of Rebbetzin Esther Jungreis, founder of Hineni International. Slovie has taught Hineni Young Couples and Parenting classes for more than 15 years. Her book, 'Raising A Child With Soul', is published by St. Martin's Press.

[Quote No.42826] Need Area: Friends > Children
"There is one book which, to my thinking, supplies the best treatise on an education according to nature. This is the first book Emile will read; for a long time it will form his whole library, and it will always retain an honoured place. It will be the text to which all our talks about natural science are but the commentary. It will serve to test our progress towards a right judgment, and it will always be read with delight, so long as our taste is unspoilt. What is this wonderful book? Is it Aristotle? Pliny? Buffon? No — it is [Daniel Defoe's novel] ‘Robinson Crusoe’ [ - a 'hero's journey' monomyth, as the great comparative mythologist, Joseph Campbell, would say.] " - Jean-Jacques Rousseau
(1712 – 1778), Franco-Swiss philosopher of the Enlightenment whose political ideas influenced the French Revolution, the development of socialist theory, and the growth of nationalism. As quoted in his book, ‘Emile: Or, On Education’, (1762).
