Wa Alikum Assalam Sister Umm Sakina,
I particuliarly (excuse the sp. mistakes) enjoyed this entry. Parenting is no easy task, and I worry about my boys a lot, even at this odd hour of the night (2 a.m.). Insh'Allah, Allah swt gives us the wisdom to know how to raise our children with good moral traits and become God-conscious mo2mains.
Currently, I'm reading The Confident Child by Dr. Apter. I hope to gain some insight on how to build a healthy self confident child and have a strong personality where they don't need to fall for peer pressure and turn their ear to the social pressures surrounding them. Granted they are still 3, but I hope I raise them to be leaders themselves and not followers to the bad apples out there. Please pray for my boys. God bless you and your daughters.
Keep up the good work with your blog sis. Mash'Allah it is informative and it keeps me coming back to read more. BTW, at what age did you start reading to your daughters, and how did they become interested in reading books? If you don't mind with the personal questions, do they watch a lot of TV at home? If not, what do they do to stay busy?
M3 Salamah, FE AMIN Allah
