“You have to wait!” is a phrase that has become harder and harder to implement in a world replete with immediate gratification. In this workshop we’ll explore the underlying mechanisms of delayed gratification and discuss concrete ways in which we can build the skill of delaying gratification within ourselves and in our children.

In recent years, bestselling authors have published book after book in the pursuit of supporting parents. As a Jewish community, we have the opportunity to tap into the ancient wisdom that Judaism offers into the process of growing up in very real and contemporary ways. Timeless truths about development, from early childhood through adolescence and beyond, can inform the way we relate to the children in our lives. We will examine questions like, “If we encourage the youngest among us to ask questions, like at the Seder, how do we understand their ability to absorb concrete and philosophical information?” and “How do the assumptions about responsibility match up with the developmental realities of a Bar or Bat Mitzvah child?”
