Over Shabbat I read Zri'ah Uvinyan BaChinuch by Rabbi Shlomo Wolbe zt"l, a highly revered rabbi who passed away last Chol-HaMoed Pesach. It is a very small book of very high quality providing guidelines for parenting and education. The book is also available in English(Planting & Building in Education:Raising a Jewish Child).
As I read the book, I could not help but find myself nodding my head in agreement. My own experiences with my children bear out what he wrote. In short, I feel that this is a must read for all parents.
