Little Jacob and Rachel were friends at the Eitz Chaim nursery school. Rachel said: "Hey, Jacob, do you want to play house?"
"Sure. What do you want me to do?” asked Jacob.
"I want you to communicate” said Rachel.
“I have no idea what that means."
"Perfect," said Rachel. "You can be the husband."
Saul and Miriam Friedman were having serious discipline problems with their seven children. Saul decided to try something new. He held up an enormous chocolate bar and asked his kids who should get it.
"Me . . . me . . . me," they chorused.
"I'll tell you who will get it," continued Saul. "The kid who promises never to talk back to me or your mother again and do everything we say."
Seven voices answered in unison: "It’s okay Dad, you can have it."
The Sound of Silence
Harvey and Susan Epstein were very concerned. Their eight year old son Moishie had never spoken a word in his life.
Then one day after lunch, Moishie turned to his mother and said: "Soup's cold."
His mother hugged him and exclaimed:
"Moishie, I've waited so long to hear you speak! Your father and I have been worried sick. So why have you never said a single word in all these years?"
Moishie said: "Up until now, everything's been okay."
