“Young people who seem embittered with bad middos… this is the nature of the seeds of souls and unripe angels — bitter when they begin to ripen, but juicy when fully grown.”
Piaseczna Rebbe -Introduction to Chovas HaTalmidim
There are two different paths of chinuch.
There is the standard course, which works for most children, most of the time. Then there is the alternative course for “crisis” cases. These two courses involve totally different sets of educational tools. When a child is in a problem situation, not only are standard tools ineffective, but they are often harmful. A different set of tools is needed to deal with him.
There is a significant number of young men and women who struggle with the challenges of adolescence, coupled with the unique challenges of our times. Teen rebellion is the plague of our generation.
In Unripe Angels, Rabbi Dan Tiomkin, noted author and kiruv specialist, has gathered a collection of tools and guidance offered by Gedolei Yisrael regarding the alternative path of chinuch that works best for such teenagers.
With love and heartfelt tefillos, it is the best way to bring out the sweetness they hold inside.
