- If you have oodles of money and don't need to work. You can leave home, travel and have a real great long vacation.
- If you make enough money to pay for childcare, special "camps," etc. so that you can go to work and know that your kids are all being safely supervised.
- Both parents are teachers, so they can be with their children, instead of teaching others.
Last week, working at Yafiz, Sha'ar Binyamin, we felt it. After some unsupervised kids knocked down some very pretty baby clothes I told a father off.
"There are Jewish Laws concerning how to act in a store. You're not permitted to waste a worker's time nor damage merchandise. I'm not here to be your children's gannenet, nursery school teacher!"
I don't mind when a customer makes a mess on the shelf looking for something to buy. The store isn't a museum. Our goal is to sell our merchandise.
But I do get angry when kids run around, or do drag races with the shopping carts and knock clothes onto the floor and leave it there. I also don't want to have to clean the spilled ice cream or try to clean the clothes from dirty, sticky, chocolate coated hands touching what they just wanted to touch or what they ran/rolled over.
After that, you get to French Hill/Ramat Eshkol. Take the train to Ammunition Hill, Givat HaTachmoshet to the 1967 Six Days War Museum.
If your kids are old enough, you can turn this into a really fun and educational project.
- Have them sketch or photograph what they've seen.
- Have them write and research the various sites.
- They can follow and mark a road map.
