Letting Them Fall, Rev. Kent Matthies

As a parent of a young child, one of the toughest things is letting the child fall down, or after he fell letting him pick himself up. I am told this dynamic of wanting to help when you may in fact be hindering the development of resiliency is a common parental struggle. As we prepare to enter the cycles of forgiveness for the Jewish High Holidays how do examine all the ways in which we might atone and change for the good of others and ourselves?
