Dovid is a writer, a professor, and the podcast host of 1840, an incredible podcast with so much substance to it. Dovid is also the Director of Education of NCSY. In this episode we discuss how to build grit in children, the importance of talking to our children about their feelings and helping them to articulate themselves. Dovid gives an amazing mashal for children’s emotions which really helps to understand children and what they are going through in their formative years. We discuss how social media effects him and his family, the Shabbos culture he has in his home, and the important role children books can have in helping parents to become better as parents. If you are into Dovid’s Top 5 book or column he used to have in Mishpacha, you are in for a real treat.
