While Toras Imecha recordings are focused on the weekly Parshah and upcoming holidays, this “Conversation” page gives us a chance to share and connect with each other over different aspects of our mothering journey. I plan to post discussion questions regularly for your participation. I invite you to please share your perspective and experience with all of us. I can't wait to learn from you!

Each conversation is its own page. Please use the page numbers below to view other conversation topics.

How do you balance your marriage, personal life, work responsibilities, household chores, and mothering?


Rebecca Masinter

Isn’t this the million dollar question??? For me, I don’t try to attain balance between all the competing demands on me at any one time. I do try to make sure that over a given time, (usually a week), I am giving my full presence to each of my roles and responsibilities. That means that sometimes I am fully present with my children, other times I shut myself in the office and do work. One night a week I focus fully on my relationship with my husband, and one night a week I try to go to bed really early for myself! I think that as long as I know what my important roles are, (and which ones are unimportant and I just have to let them go most weeks!), I end up with a mostly balanced life. No day feels completely balanced to me, but most weeks I look back and feel that I gave attention to each role some of the time. What about you?
