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 ???

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