A Royal Crown - The Head Covering of a Woman
The mitzvah that instructs a married woman to cover her hair seems like an inconceivable restriction to many people. What’s the difference between her hair and the permissibly exposed hair of a single woman?
A woman’s modesty
I began to dress modestly two months ago and have been wearing dresses and long skirts. In my workplace they didn’t take it too well and I have been suffering snide comments, insults, and looks about it. Some of the managers barely say hello to me since then ... I do not know how to overcome this and wonder if it’s even worth keeping this commandment if I am suffering so much because of it.

Educating Little Girls
Hello, we are a religious family, thank G-d, we have 2 daughters aged 4 and almost 3, and a boy four months old. My question is regarding the girls. We have been teaching them to wash their hands in the morning and before meals, say Grace After Meals, the blessings before eating and drinking, waiting several hours between meat and milk, not talking between washing one’s hands and eating, etc. and they have been cooperating beautifully. But sometimes, they do not recite the blessing on a particular food or they talk between washing hands and eating, etc. My question is should I remind them that they didn’t say the blessing? Or just be an example to them without mentioning or pointing anything out? I want to note that they are not doing it on "purpose" and as soon as I remind them they right away say the blessing. It’s the same about waiting between meat and milk, how long should they wait at their age? And if they do not want to wait the necessary time, should I just give in to them? I want to note that if they want to eat something dairy and I tell them we just ate meat, they usually understand and do not insist on it, but should I just give it to them without saying that we ate meat? Another question: at what age is it important to wear socks? (I am particular that they wear only skirts and three quarters sleeve blouses from the age of 3, but I dress them in tight pants under the skirt instead of stockings.) Thank you for your answers in advance.

High heels for a woman
I know that a woman may wear low heels as long as it isn’t eye-catching. The question is what if the shoes make noise when the woman walks. Is this problematic from the point of view of modesty? Is it permitted / prohibited to wear shoes like that? Thanks in advance.
