It's easy for children to express their feelings by drawing a picture as opposed to answering questions directly. Children may be reluctant or even hostile about discussing certain topics. Creating artwork is a safe venue that allows kids to tackle tough issues in a creative way. Talking to the children about their drawings or paintings and helping them interpret the art can provide adults with the opening they need to get at the heart of the problems affecting our children and help the children release their negative emotions.

Positive Parenting in The Muslim Home
Parenting is all too often filled with sleepless nights, tears, and anxiety followed by endless doubts: “Did I do my best?” “What could I have done differently?” “Am I responsible?” Positive Discipline, a philosophy conceptualized by Dr. Jane Nelsen, provides a powerful model for channeling parenting struggles into proven methods that yield results. Noha Alshugairi and Munira Lekovic Ezzeldine will share timeless principles on how to: ●Approach parenting in Islam as a process of love and guidance ●Apply Positive Discipline tools to nurture Islamic values in matters of faith, relationships, and everyday life ●Empower children to be responsible, capable and proactive individuals ●Address sensitive issues constructively, including sex, drugs, bullying, and youth radicalization ●Resolve conflicts by focusing on solutions rather than punishments
