This book covers most of the social issues related to parents, husbands, wives, and children. It is beneficial for all members of the family, those starting out on family life and those families which have already developed as a basic unity of society.

The book is divided into eight main sections. The first section explains the objectives of tarbia. The second section describes the basic principles of tarbia deduced from Qur’an and the teachings of Prophet Muhammad, pbuh, as a Murabbi (Murabbi is the person who conducts the tarbia process) and educator. The third section reflects on the present environment in North America, its importance and influence on children, and how parents can foster a positive environment with a strong support system for their children’s development. In the fourth section methods and ways of tarbia are illustrated in detail with practical examples relevant to the North American situation. The fifth section is devoted to the discussions of common cases and problems which are usually faced by parents. Many case studies are described for various ages and genders. The reader is asked to analyze these cases and answer certain questions. This helps the reader to put the principles learned in previous sections into practice. Section six deals with the same case studies in section five, but for each case the authors explain the reason for the problem, the symptoms of the problem and suggest proper solutions. Section seven is something different. It is completely written by our four children, their experience, their feelings, the way they deal with each other and the result of our work with them. You will sample some of their short stories and poetry at various stages of their life. Finally, section eight, lists some more tips for parents to remember at odd times with children.
