Boys Will Be Boys
By Beily Paluch
Mendy is just 11, but he draws great cartoons. With his parents’ encouragement, he now distributes an illustrated story to the boys in his class every Rosh Chodesh. Shimmy is fascinated by the camera he received for his birthday. His mother bought him a few props and lets him practice shooting his siblings as long as their patience allows. Sometimes she gives him permission to wake up early and capture a sunrise from the deck in their backyard.
These boys are having fun indulging in a hobby they enjoy. At the same time, whether they realize it or not, they are developing skills that can eventually help them earn a living.
As our society enables our sons to learn Torah for more years than ever before, these skills can prove invaluable when a yungerman ﬁnds himself ready to enter the workforce.
What would your son enjoy?
