Parsha* for Parenting - Yitro 5769

This week's Torah portion includes the commandment,

"Honor your father and your mother."
The Talmud** comments*** on this verse
that there are three partners in the creation of a child:
his father,
his mother,
and G-d.
It also comments that a child represents
his parents' invitation for G-d to dwell among them.

(Well, obviously.)
*"Parsha" refers to the section of Torah that is read every week.
** The Talmud is a record of rabbinic commentary, law, and stories from around the year 500.

***Kiddushin 30b
