I became religious many years ago, and recently I gave up my smartphone. It is very hard for me because I see many religious people using kosher smartphones with Whatsapp and even Hidabroot has a group! So is it allowed or not? This is really confusing me.

Watching the children
I an newly religious and like everyone in my situation, have a lot of trials with my family, one of which happened last week. My mother took my 5 year old son to buy him a present for his birthday. I called her to ask her where she went and she said she went with him to the mall. I immediately told her that my husband does not want the child to roam around such places especially in the summer when people are dressed indecently. My mother was very hurt and even slammed the phone down on me. Afterwards she calmed down and told me that we are exaggerating too much. She said, "What's in the mall? A 5-year-old boy does not look at the women." When I explained to her that places like these do affect children, she did not accept my words and even cried because she says she feels sorry for the child. Also, my mother knows I sometimes don’t come to visit because when the children are there, they watch television and I am not happy about it. My mother says we exaggerate, and they are only watching educational programs. I am very confused and sometimes I think after conversations like these that maybe we really are exaggerating. Help me understand the right limits, on what we should not compromise the education of our children. May G-d help us and all the Jewish people, thank you.
May A Woman Post Tznius Pictures on Facebook?
Dear K’vod Harav, I'm doing zikui rabim meriting the masses in Facebook since 2008.Many times I don't post pics of myself or family (of course tzniut pics) & I post pics according to the oncoming Chag or whatever but sometimes I feel that the message is gonna be more effective if they see a normal cool person delivering it, because that's what people want to see, also a happy family etc...I know of course that is a safety measures that a person should take & only friends can see them (sometimes only me, depends how I want it, fb gives you choices of privacy) My question is I'm ok in my observation & I'm allow to post tzniut pics in fb, right?
How Can we Fulfill the Recollection of Going Out of Egypt if Archeological Findings Claim Differently?
I learn with a non-religious young man who is interested in Judaism.

He wants to hear their perspective, from historical writings, etc. I don't know where to find such information. Could you help me?

Dealing with Pressures of Life
I am a religious woman who has been studying a profession for five years so that my husband can sit and learn for as long as possible, and be involved in outreach. This Wed. is my final oral exam; 15 minutes and it will all be over, and I have no idea why I am feeling tremendously under pressure. I have taken many tests, even oral exams, and I have always seen the Hand of God supporting me and helping me. I know for sure that Hashem can do anything and He can put the right words into my mouth. But this time I can't seem to grasp onto that certainty, even though I have seen open miracles throughout my schooling. The way I am feeling seems like I am lacking in gratitude to G-d for all the good He has done for me until now, as all of a sudden I'm thinking He can't help me this time. The exam is going to be in a language that is not my mother tongue, and it could be this is why I am feeling so worried and pressured. I would appreciate any advice you can give me, and also if you can pray for my success (Edna bat Natalie Rachel). Thank you very much.
War Before the Messiah
It seems that the coming war will be of a religious nature, that will bring people to spiritual elevation. Before the coming of the Messiah, must the other religions first fall, and if so, won’t the world descend into chaos?

Beginning the process of becoming observant
I am married and I have two young daughters. I want to start keeping Shabbat and slowly become more observant. My husband has no problem with me becoming more religious, but it is hard for me to continue this process alone. This makes an unpleasant atmosphere at home and uncomfortable misunderstandings between us. What should I do so that both of us can progress and and become more observant together, step by step? (I know that I can't make him religious but I am sure that, underneath it all, he really wants to. He just is so used to his secular life that it is hard for him to disconnect and even keep Shabbos.) What should I do?
