I think the last couple pages should be splintered off into a new "New Out of Town Communities Growing Like Mushrooms" thread, or something like that.


Anyway, here's another con for Clevland:  :P

Sounds like a pro to me.

My 7yo is also a pro. Don't think it has to do with teachers.
Father's attitude toward bentching. Bentch with him/her. Put him/her on your shoulders if you need to.
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

I'd take a step further.  You should bench.  Kids do what they say you do.

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.

I don't know about OOT schools, but locally this is definitely a problem. This, unfortunately, manifests itself later in a variety of ways.
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

Oh, and don't militantly shove it down his throat

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!

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