Morristown Jewish Center Beit Yisrael

Parenting Education

As we are committed to optimally helping the children in our Religious School learn, we would be doing a disservice to best helping our children if we didn’t also reach out to help the parents.  Family is such a powerful part of our Jewish existence.  Parents play such a critical role. 

While special training is needed to become teachers, Rabbis, Cantors, electricians, plumbers, carpenters, doctors, nurses, lawyers, chefs, musicians, and so much more, no training is required to become parents. 

We know that we do have so many excellent parents here at MJCBY.  We are not claiming that any of you are not already great parents, but please think about this: “Even professional athletes still get coached!”  To play as optimally as possible, even the greatest athletes have coaches to coach them to perform at their very best. 

Similarly, here at MJCBY, we offer Parenting Education sessions to help even the greatest parents perform at their very best.

Some of our Parenting Education topics include:

  • Back-to-School Prep Session
  • Starting the School Year Right
  • Understanding & Handling Domestic Violence
  • Empowering Kids to Make a Difference
  • Quality Time
  • Positive Communication
  • Putting Your Child’s Care in the Hands of Others
  • Raising Healthy Kids
  • Cultivating Positive Sibling Relationships
  • Understanding Learning Differences
  • Internet Safety

MJCBY parents and any interested parents from the broader community are invited to attend any of the sessions in our Monthly Parenting Education Series:
