"They may go OTD because of too much pressure"

"Do not be too tough against sex, your kids, or your wife, because sex is needed for procreation, and your wife and kids, they may go off the derech from too much pressure. In other words, don't push these 3 away with both hands. "The left hand should push them away and the right hand should bring them close". (Sanhedrin 107b, Sota 47a) Notice that the right hand is the one that brings them close. We must cool down our frumkite and use our brains.  (from Dec 1, 2011)
