NURTURE THEIR NATURE
Written by Rabbi Yosef Lynn, PsyD and Rabbi Jack Cohen, EdM.

they are poised to flourish. Our job, as parents and teachers, is to guide them on their journeys of self-discovery. This book lights the way with the wisdom of Torah from a stunning spectrum of sources, empowering us to "nurture their nature."
"Based on a breathtaking array of writings by Jewish sages, from Talmudic times until our own age, with startling insights into their teachings, the book presents a case for self-knowledge as the key to reaching each individual’s potential.... Anyone from a beginner to a developed scholar will benefit from reading this book."
HaRav Aharon Feldman
"If teachers grasp [this book’s] message and its method, they will be empowered to inspire their students to discover what is special about them — and empower those students to grow into their unique personalities. This could be the solution to today's dispirited and dull educational process that so often results in young people falling away from their Judaism — and their potential for real happiness and achievement...."
Rabbi Akiva Tatz, M.D.
"Although I no longer give haskamos (approbations), I must make an exception for a sefer that promotes self-knowledge and self-esteem, which are the foundation of mental health. Nurture Their Nature is a vital sefer and should be studied rather than just read."
Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski, M.D.
