Move from “more talking to more doing.” The familiar adage “Do as I say, not as I do” does not hold up, according to Rabbi Yossi Deren. “Teenagers are very, very smart today, and our actions as parents say everything—let them become the teenagers that we want them to become and set good examples for them.”...
