Profound and Moving--Or Not; The Joys and Struggles of Parenting.

Last night at bedtime, I thought I would give my children wisdom. So I quoted from Reb Nachman of Bratslav, a man who lived a hard life with great wisdom and joy and helped to transform the major religion of Judaism. 

The whole world, he said, is a very narrow bridge. And it is absolutely essential to not be afraid. 

"Kind of sucks if you're scared of heights," said my teenager, and he went to sleep. 
Hebrew text reads - Kol haolam kulo gesher tzar meod vehaikar lo lfached klal
Kol ha-olam ku-lo gesher tzar me'od
V'hair-i-kar lo l'fached klal.
