2017 is ending and I like to look over which blog articles were most popular as this will inform me of what you'd like more of in 2018, inshaAllah. The common theme of the parenting articles were about being responding with kindness and connecting with your child. Most problems will resolve itself when you can do this, I firmly believe this.
You will find this was a common theme with our beloved Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. He always responded with kindness, even to enemies or those who had treated him terribly. Study the Prophet's life and you will find that this is so. If you need a word for 2018 to inspire you then let it be KINDNESS.
Without further ado, here are my top 5 parenting posts for 2017. If you haven't already checked them out then now is the time.
1. Kindness When Your Child Makes a Mistake

3. 5 Ways to Bond With Your Baby
