9 – 12 years Assalaamu alaikum parents! Watching this show made me remember my days of being a girl scout. Apart from the ugly blue uniforms, it was a memorable experience. We learnt a lot of useful things, like how to tie knots, make stuff and basically survive in the bush. Pretty useful when you...

Oh my goodness, did you realize that in five years it will be the year 2023? What a ride it has been. I remember thinking that by now we would have flying cars and kids would be using their hoverboards to school! I thought that we would be learning advanced topics and subjects in schools...

Songs & Nasheeds Kids today are very easily corrupted. It’s not that they are any different from previous generations, it’s just that these days our kids are bombarded by the media that tries to subvert them at every possible opportunity. While you may be monitoring what your kids are watching on television and mobile, you...

 6 – 12 It’s important for kids to explore new ideas and be able to see things from different perspectives.  One of my favourite subjects was Anthropology because it taught me about other people.
