Great.. any tips on how you made this happen? My 7yo has zero interest :)
Sounds like a pro to me.
Rafi is 6 and is an expert bentcher.

My kids benched nice till age 8-10. The fun starts later.

I'd take a step further.  You should bench.  Kids do what they say you do.
I fully accept.  I need to be mechazek in this.. I mean benching "better"...

Was posted in jest. What I was pointing at was that he didn't allow getting the easy way out.

Good Rebbi.
Nothing against JJ's like for likes, but in general, I'm not much of a like clicker. This comment, however, was liked!

I'm going to step on a landmine here. I grew up in various out of town communities, then lived and sent a child to school  & tutored boys for 4 years in Brooklyn  after which we then moved out of town. The Yahudus education, specifically in Shabbos concepts (6 yemei bereishes, etc.) & Meleches Shabbos, are considerably stronger out of town. I have found the "in-town" schools hyper focused on "covering ground" and "finishing" while the "out of town" schools were more focused on Yidishkeit.
How many times did you grow up ???
Wanna do a מצוה/favor? Help me get rid of this

for many of us growing was and is a constant process. For others it ends when they're about 3 years old.

Hours I spend in congestion: 0. The bike lane doesn't have any. Oh, and I can ride all year long except for a handful of rainy days.

Is that a pro or a con?

The only traffic I have is if one of my kids are taking snack from the steps to my basement at the same time that I am going down.
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.
