Parents and Children

السَّلاَمُ عَلَيْكُمْ وَرَحْمَةُ اللهِ وَبَرَكَاتُهُ

It’s Monday 22nd June 2020. Let’s focus upon ‘Parents & Children’ today.

One of the most important relationships is the one between parents and children. Parents should bring up their children in such a friendly and warm atmosphere that the children can, very freely and openly, discuss all their issues with them. This is a very important aspect of family life.

Many times the attitude of the parents puts the children into a very difficult situation. They want to discuss important issues but the communication channel is just not there. This must not be the case. Be like friends with your children. Talk with them, joke with them and always maintain a very positive relationship with them.

The house where this takes place will be a home of happiness and joy. It will be stress free as everyone can speak their mind and offload anything that is bothering them. It is very easy when the children are young. When they start hitting their teens, communication with each other starts to become difficult.

Remember, these are the most important years. Every parent loves to play with their young toddlers. The relationship needs to strengthen from the moment your child starts secondary school. This then needs to continue all the way till they get married and beyond.

When you have family issues, discuss as a family. Let each member feel part of the family and have their say. Try and understand the angle your children are coming from. Have a good healthy open discussion. The whole family will not always agree on everything. That’s fine. You can agree to disagree, but the communication must not stop.

Almighty Allāh make all our houses homes of happiness and joy, Āmeen.
