In Essentials of Parenting: Raising Kids with a Faith that Lasts, you'll discover how to use family fun, everyday conversations, and meaningful milestone markers to launch your child's relationship with God.

Here's what you'll find inside: discussion questions to get you thinking and talking, creative exercises to help you better understand your child and yourself, Scripture input to keep you on track, down-to-earth advice from experienced mentors, and "Next Step" activities for practicing what you've learned.
Raising a child is probably the most fulfilling thing you will ever do...and also the most frustrating, nerve-wracking, and gut-wrenching. With all the plans and dreams you have for your children, there are bound to be dashed hopes, unrealized goals, and unmet expectations along the way. Negative emotions, including anger, disappointment, and frustration may arise within you, and you may find yourself feeling less and less emotionally connected with your children. Introducing The Connection Cycle, the revolutionary new parenting program that will help you deal with your feelings and respond to your children in a way that will allow you to create and maintain your emotional connection, from toddlers to teens, and into adulthood. After all, maintaining your emotional connection with your children is top priority in my book!"

I believe that parenting is a serious job which must be undertaken consciously; clearly understanding what it entails. Children have a right to have good parents who can be role models for them and who can not only teach them the tools to succeed in this life, but also to take from the treasures of Allah and succeed in the life to come. Whether you like it or not, you are your child's role model. Your choice is to decide what kind of role model you want to be - one that they can look up to or one that they have to look down on. Children listen with their eyes. They don't care what you say until they see what you do. Today, young Muslim parents are anxious to ensure that their children are brought up as practicing Muslims and are a credit to themselves and their parents. This little book is a consolidation of all the things that I have said to people in answer to their questions.
