I think many people can agree that many of us Parents can find ourselves in a rut often. Not knowing what to do, often resorting to trial and error with parenting techniques. I do it all the time, and think it can be the best way to parent, but there are those times where you do not want to go through trial and error on several issues. I for one wish I took Marriage and Parenting courses, respectively before I was married, and before I had kids. I remember how many times I would just sit there and cry in my first year as a mom. And that was to a baby! Imagine the things parents go through as the kids get older. I often look back at all the things my very own mother had to go through parenting me and my siblings. We were a total of 5, and for most of our years, she was a single parent, doing it all on her own. Anyway, to get to the point, my daughter came home from school with a paper, when I read it, I smiled, and said FINALLY! In big bold letters as if it was written in GOLD on top of this wonderful piece of paper, was written Parenting Workshop, something both my husband and I have said we need. So yes, it will be held here in Riyadh, at Faisaliyah compound, and the details are bellow...
