The Beginning of Education

The beginning of education is: "A child nurses from his mother's breasts" (Berachot 3a) – proper character traits do not flow through the milk, but health flows through it, and a close connection and love flow through it. The beginning of education is the mother's love. It gives the child self-confidence, strength, joy, spiritual health and stability, and will remain as a blessing for him his entire life.
A father's love is obviously also part, although he cannot nurse the baby. But he can hug and kiss the baby indefinitely, until a certain age where it then becomes confusing. This declaration of love will remain with the baby his entire life.
The most important thing at the beginning of a child's life is to feel love, and this need continues throughout his entire life.
