Parental Rules Which Turn Jewish Kids Into Geniuses
10. Reward independence
In ordinary families, parents are convinced that children will succeed in life if they believe they can do anything. But in Jewish families, parents find it more important that children think they can do anything themselves. In Israeli cafes, it is common to see a one-year-old eating a steak all on his own. This is because children are allowed to do anything on their own as soon as they are physically capable of doing so.
