Mushka Gopin M.Ed. is a mother of four and a parent educator. She teaches mother to know what they're doing so they can love doing it. Her approach is more than just "gentle" or "respectful," it's a blend of science (developmental psychology and attachment theory), educational philosophies (primarily Montessori), and Torah values with practical application for a busy frum household. It's textbook parenting that works in real life!
