Addressing the workshop, Mrs Aneesa Nazir and Mrs Uzma Jaffer, both working in the field of education as well as fulfilling the responsibility of motherhood, stressed on the need for a proper upbringing of a child by an educated mother that could help make the world a better place to live.

The aims and objectives of the workshop were to understand the responsibilities as Muslim mothers, realise the problems faced, recognise the wrong attitudes or mistakes made, find solutions and put into practice whatever has been learnt.

The workshop discussed the do's and don'ts of child upbringing. The significance of being a mother was also discussed and how a single mistake could be a decisive factor during the character carving of a child.

Problems faced by both working and stay-at-home mothers were discussed and solutions presented. The lecturers stressed the need for implementing principles by making them a practice, which they said, was a key to ensuring a healthy upbringing. Both the lecturers also explained the basic principles of parenting to the huge gathering.

Mrs Jaffer said that constant discouragement to a child during his learning stages could prove destructive in his later part of life.
