Parent’s Hierarchy of Needs

In the world of psychology, there is a well know theory called Maslow‘s Hierarchy of Need. This is a motivational theory comprised of a five-tier model of human needs, often depicted as hierarchical levels within a pyramid. From the bottom of the hierarchy upwards, the needs are: physiological (food and clothing), safety (job security), love and belonging needs (friendship), esteem, and self-actualization.

We did some research on what this would theory would look like if we applied a hierarchical approach to parenting. And here are the results, starting at the bottom of the pyramid with the most fundamental areas first.

  1. Laying Strong Foundations
  2. Building Healthy Children
  3. Raising Authentic Jews
  4. Guiding Children Constructively
  5. Strengthening Generation Continuity

In each of the strata of this pyramid, our podcast will delve into a number of crucial topics in order to build from the bottom up.

What’s the goal? The goal is to raise The Jews Next Dor, passionate and committed Jews to lead the next generation.
