Parents And Children: Mutual Concern

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: How does the wisdom of Kabbalah relate to the role of the mother and her influence on the adult life of a person?

Answer: In the Torah it is said that a child must leave his parents and adhere to his wife, establish a family with her, and have his own children.

The parents must not cause trouble for their children or intervene in their lives. There is no other way. Rabash used to say: the best thing in relationships with children is to open the pocket and not say a word.

It is up to us to help them as much as possible and to let them take care of themselves without hindering their freedom of choice.

According to the Torah, the role of the child regarding his parents is to care for them to the end of their days. He must do this to the degree that it is possible because his mother granted him life and he will never be able to pay back his debt to her.

There is no doubt that caring for parents is an obligation of adult children because this is part of their correction.
