Play • 15 min
  • Are you struggling to raise mentally strong kids right now? 
  • Do you worry that your kids won’t have the emotional skills they need to succeed in life? 
  • Are you concerned that some of your parenting habits might be setting a bad example for your kids?

If you answered yes to any of those questions, you’re going to want to tune in to this episode. I’m sharing how to give up the unhealthy yet common parenting habits that are draining kids of the mental strength they need to reach their greatest potential.

As a psychotherapist and a foster parent, I’ve seen firsthand how parenting habits directly affect the way kids think, feel, and behave. And while you might have a zillion healthy parenting habits you do already, you might also have a few unhealthy habits that could use a little tweaking--and you might not even recognize that they’re doing them.

A few little changes could make a big difference to your child’s overall wellbeing.  Based on my bestselling book, here are the 13 Things Mentally Strong Parents Don't Do.

Singles Edition: Destigmatizing Being Single and Navigating Mixed Signals w/ Hafsa Hassan
If you're single, it shouldn't only mean that you're not dating. There's more to you than your relationship status. Often times we witness a woman's value being tied to her relationship status. So what message are we sending to those who are single or unmarried? What happened to the belief of trusting in God's timing? In this episode I sit down with Hafsa Hassan, a transformational coach with a holistic approach, to discuss the stigma surrounding single women, the difference between settling and manifesting the right partner and how to gauge sexual compatibility before marriage. We often rush into the next phase of our lives without truly enjoying where we are now. For the most part, we are at the right place and right time in our lives. There's a reason why certain things unfold for us and why other things are put on hold for us. I get it, it's not easy blocking out the extra white noise and the unsolicited opinions of others. Don't get me started on the halal dating scene but for the sake of this episode topic, we might as well discuss it. I think it's time for us women to navigate it with the confidence and belief that we are the prize and to not lower our standards just because society thinks we are asking for too much. In this episode, Hafsa does an incredible job with covering the base line and foundation every relationship should come with.  But the most important point we covered is finding out who we are at our core, stripped away from the identity of being someone's daughter, wife, sister or mother. I just want to say this once more, your worth does not lie in the relationships you do or don't have at the moment. Don't forget that naseeb also includes yourself and what Allah has written for you to experience before ever being someone's partner. Stay single, until you're comfortable with being single.
