On Saturday March 1st, Muslim Family Services hosted their first workshop of the year, "Parenting in the West: An Islamic Perspective". The Workshop was lead by Drs. Mohamed and Ekram Beshir, authors who hail from Canada. The workshop ran from 10:00AM-4:30PM. Guest were given course materials and a free copy of the authors book on parenting.
Guest recieved their breakfast of donuts, pastries and hot tea as they got seated. Dr. Mohamed Beshir began by explaining what an ideal parent to child relationship looks like. This type of family consist of happy parents and happy children respecting each other's individual needs and striving to make each other happy.
Then the dysfunctional parent-child relationship was highlighted. In this relationship, the parents are at each other's throat and the children constantly fight. As this situation continues, the children eventually begin defiantly challenging the parents.
