I have a sensitive chinuch question about a child who is lying and I would like to speak to an expert mechanech for advice, but I don't know who to call. Does anyone have a recommendation and contact info for someone who would be helpful and available for such a discussion? Thanks in advance!

I just want to say, depending on the age of the child, my MIL A"H (who taught Pre-1-A in a well-known Brooklyn school for many years) used to say that lying is very normal in the early years. later on, is more of an issue.

Mrs. Leah Trenk in Lakewood is an amazing mechaneches and someone I've consulted over the years on chinuch and behavior issues and questions. I have loved every response she has ever given me. (Just Love Them!)

Thank you for replying! Is it the type that anyone can just call up and ask her a chinuch question (without having a prior relationship)? Could you please share her phone number?

Would love if anyone else has other suggestions too.

I'm not sure. I did take her parenting classes years ago. Also it could be there would be a charge for something that is an extended conversation, especially with no prior relationship.

If you're chassidish you can call Esther Nissel Kraus.

She has a very distinct mehalach, which does not resonate with our chasidish lifestyle.

Every mechanech has a different shnit. You need to know if she understands your mehalach.

With your chassidish lifestyle? What does that mean. Yes, every person has their own mehalach. You need to make sure who you call is on the same mehalach as you. She's very helpful IMO even when I don't always agree I become smarter.

I don't live in Lakewood, but even if I did have access to a phone book, I have a feeling there would be a very long list of 'Katzensteins'. I appreciate you taking the time to respond, but putting vague info out there with an unreasonable assumption that people will know who you're talking about is frustrating for the people that you're trying to help.

You can start a new post asking for his number. If he is well known people will know the number.

Whew! I'm just trying to help. You can look up any community if you have the smartlist app on your phone. I don't feel comfortable posting a private person's number, but I just looked up Katzenstein on my phone, and there is only one listed as Rabbi (there are only 4 altogether. How common of a name do you think this is anyway?). You can pm me if you'd like for his number.

I don’t feel like she understands today’s children.
She is very entertaining to listen to though.
