A story about Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka's חינוך in honor of כ''ה אדר the Rebbetzin's birthday.

The מלמד of the Frierdiker Rebbe's daughters wanted to teach them only things that fit into שכל, not to scare them with stories of ניסים and מסירת נפש. 

The Frierdiker Rebbe told him that on the contrary, a Yiddishe child needs to start his חינוך specifically with stories of מסירת נפש. The Frierdiker Rebbe said that דווקא this is what resonates with a Yiddishe child.

The Rebbe brings out from this story that the Chinuch of Yiddishe Children should be permeated with מסירת נפש.
