The book is 4 parts. The first part explains really all you need to know when it comes to psychology and development of kids, it discusses different parenting techniques, and the foundations of "Positive Parenting" and how that ties in with Islamic ideals.
The second part discusses parenting tools, with clear examples and diagrams of how to make them work. It includes things like how to improve communication, enabling versus empowering, family meetings, how to make Islam a habit and so much more.
The third part is divided by age, with sections pertaining to each age and the common challenges for each.
The last part is "parent essays" where parents of different walks of life and the authors discuss things like autism, how to discuss difficult issues, how to have a peaceful home, building resiliance and nurturing spirituality/loving Allah and Islam the Choice.
A number of difficult issues are discussed in this book pertaining to today's world, including approach to sexuality, sexual orientation, youth radicalization, internet pornography, drugs and much more.
A common theme throughout the book is one of "letting go" and realizing that your children though they came through you, they are not you. It encourages parents to recognize their kids as individuals from an early age thus empowering them to make their own choices and become stronger Muslims.
I recommend this book to anyone beginning or trying to navigate the waters of parenting in this difficult age, or anyone who has ever felt alone or unsure about parenting. It is a book that forces you to look within yourself as well, in the best of ways.
