Eilu d’varim (revised edition for parents)

These are the obligations without measure:

To respect the child as a person.
To treat him with tenderness always.
To talk with him gently, morning and evening.
To welcome his friends.
To tend to him when he is sick.
To support him into independent adulthood.
To teach him that he is part of a connected world made up of those living, dead, and yet to be born.
To let him lead you to new insights.
To make the world a better place.

And mindfulness that each of us is born with a pure soul encompasses them all.
