A Child Must Feel Beloved

The Tolna Rebbe, Rabbi Yitzchok Menachem Weinberg (lives in Eretz Yisrael) is considered an expert on chinuch. He says:

"I can say with certainty that a large percentage of the dropouts can recount emotional blows they suffered at a tender age, between 8-12. Usually, they remember that their personal needs as a student were ignored."

He also says:

"A beloved child does not rebel. That's what Sifri comments on the pasuk, 'And you shall love Hashem your G-d' - someone who loves, does not kick.'

"If the child will love, he will not rebel, and in order for the child to love he must feel beloved."
