Torah. Language. Math. Science. What is missing in our children’s formal education?
Most children need to be taught the “talent” of happiness. It doesn’t happen automatically — and it is the central key that enables them to lead successful, productive, and meaningful lives.
Beth Perkel synthesizes deep Torah concepts, the most up-to-date psychological methods, scientific studies and research and weaves them into a practical, personalized system for us and our children. Light at the Beginning of the Tunnel teaches parents how to empower children with micro-habits and mindsets that will wire them with lifelong skills to improve their attitudes, reactions, and interactions throughout life. With many profound exercises, teachings, and tips that are applicable to adults as well, this book offers the power to illuminate all stages of the journey through the tunnel of life.
“Beth Perkel has written a book that is both practical and thought-provoking. She masterfully blends Torah ideas and modern scholarship. Light at the Beginning of the Tunnel is invaluable in its ability to strike a balance between comprehensiveness and depth. It clearly explains countless positive psychology concepts, integrating easy-to-use applications for teaching children the foundations of enduring happiness. This is a highly recommended, meaningful, and valuable read for everybody who is looking for a parenting book that is both wise and practical.” – David Pelcovitz, Ph.D. Straus Chair in Psychology and Education, Yeshiva University.
“Beth Perkel’s book is a powerhouse of knowledge, tools, and insights, equipping parents with skills they need to help their children learn to take care of their well-being as they navigate a complicated modern world.
