Summer can make or break a child. Gedolim, rabbanim and professionals are strongly urging us to speak to our children before sending them to camp to ensure an enjoyable and abuse-free camping experience.
Recently in Lakewood, a senior posek and senior pediatrician have partnered to warn parents about the dangers of abuse for children in summer camp. Signs have been hung in shuls around Lakewood with the phone number of a hotline, urging parents to call and listen to an important shiur about summer camps and protecting children.
Rav Yaakov Forchheimer, senior posek at Lakewood’s Bais Medrash Govoah, addresses the obligation that a parent has to speak with their children before camp.
Rabbi Paysach Krohn addresses the importance of having open communication with your children.
Dr. Reuven Shanik, a leading pediatrician in Lakewood, is one of the speakers as well as Dr. Hylton Lightman, a leading pediatrician for the Five Towns and Far Rockaway, and Mrs. Debbie Fox, an LCSW and founder of Magen Yeladim International.
