Last Dec, Muis in collaboration with Families for Life organised a family seminar for parents with pre-school children. With guest-of-honour, Assoc Prof Dr Faishal Ibrahim, the seminar touched on issues about positive parenting in Islam, mental wellness as well as screen times for children.
The online seminar received positive public response with over 200 registrants.
There were three breakout rooms held during the session, addressing three different aspects of parenting.
