Please join us to hear Dr. Hisham Yayha Altalib talk about his new book, “Parent-Child Relations: A Guide to Raising Children.

Dr. Altalib’s website describes the book this way: “All parents can benefit from this extensive guide to the fundamentals of parenting and child development. The series, based on extensive research and scholarship and founded in Islamic principles, is motivated by a drive for intellectual and moral regeneration of the Muslim mind and psyche through education. It takes the frustration out of parenting and offers strategies and techniques for teaching children how to problem-solve, make decisions, and develop self-esteem.”
