Kips and the Crisis


& the

Coronavirus Crisis

We are all going through what may be the most nerve wracking challenging experience of our lifetime. For those of us who have children in crisis (commonly referred to as KIPs, Kids In Pain), we have some unique struggles that need a unique perspective. Below I offer some guidance in the hope that it may make things easier for us all as we await with confidence the Yeshuas Hashem..


Rabbi Shimon Russell

1) Your KIP is not crazy. They just hate feeling/being controlled by you (or anyone else for that

matter !) Consequently at a time like this when external controls are being placed on all of us

including them, they should NOT BE EXPECTED to take this situation as maturely & as

seriously as us & as society in general require.
