How To Guide Children’s Behavior (From an Islamic Perspective)

I received three free PDFs to review from Author Jameela Ho for my honest opinion. And the verdict is that this collection is a compelling parenting guide. Because I’m also a Love and Relationship Adviser, I think the methods laid out by sister Jameela Ho can also be applied to our marriages insha’Allah.

I started my review backward. By that, I mean I started reading the workbook first. Then, I read the Muslim Parenting Journal. And finally, I read the actual book. Normally, people read these the other way around. It doesn’t matter to me. What matters is that this method worked for me and I was able to get the benefits of the knowledge she passed down to me alhamdullilah.

So the Workbook is about 27 pages and it will give you many tips before you resort to corporal punishment if must go there as a parent.

The Journal  is about 42 pages. It includes plenty of space for you to write down the way you will implement your parenting skills after it gives you hadiths sherif, quotes or proverbs for each of the 19 strategies of better parenting. This is also a great writing prompt for parents to reflect on past and future actions.

Below is the summary of the 19 techniques for better parenting.

How to guide Children's Behaviour Summary

Finally, the Actual book ‘How To Guide Children’s Behavior (From an Islamic Perspective)’ of about 37 pages goes deeper and coaches us on how to act and say things to our children. It makes us realize that it’s not what we say that have an impact on our children. It’s how and the way we say it. 

I definitely recommend it to any parent who needs a fresh start with challenging  children.

Thank you for reading,
