Childhood, school, job, marriage, and...children. Practically everyone goes through these cycles of life. The most important job a family does is help guide our future generation through these milestones in life. Each child is different; each family and its challenges are different. But there is a lot which we all share in common.
This page is your page to discuss the joys and pains of parenting. The family is still a strong part of our identity as Muslims in America, but it is under pressure in a society where gender competition seems to be more important than cooperation between genders.
The challenges that Muslim parents face in the West are unique. We can help each other by sharing issues, questions, and answers. With this in mind, we are sharing a few articles here.
