|The Muslim parent is a positive parent|
It was an AHA or lightbulb moment on Day 10 of my 13 Days Qualities of a Muslim Parent Challenge, after we've put into practice being lenient. We began to see that being kind, patient, affectionate and lenient contributed to positive outcomes for our children. The children were happier as well as the mums.
Looking at these first four qualities of a Muslim parent, it dawned on me that these are actually in the style of positive parenting. Positive parenting is about guiding or discipling children through positive means rather than punitive.
