Principal's Message

Message from the Principal: Brother Eric Ali-- When guiding our children toward proper Islamic character, we must remember that part of being a wise teacher or parent is being kind and gentle with our children. During the time of the Prophet (saw), a Bedouin urinated in the masjid. Immediately the Prophet’s companions rushed toward the man to beat him. But the Prophet (saw) told them to leave him alone. After the man finished urinating, the Prophet (saw) told him, “Verily, filth and urine are not permitted in these masjids. Indeed, it is for the remembrance of Allah.” The Messenger said to his companions, “I was sent to make things easy, and I was not sent to make things difficult.” And he poured a bucket of water over the urine. Even though our children were raised in Islam, eventually they will have to choose to be Muslims. Let’s help make the proper decision easy for them.-- Al-Madinah School: 1635 South Saint Andrews Place, Los Angeles, California 90019-- (1-323) 296-5961

Firgure my Trigger--Being Proactive with Tantrums By: Grandma Jeddah

When your child “loses it,” think about what preceded the incident.  Did she get embarrassed or humiliated?  Did she feel like a failure because she didn’t win a game?  Is it almost time for her to do her homework or go to bed? Knowing your child’s triggers can be an enormous asset for you.  It can allow you to prevent a tantrum before it gets the chance to start. Or it can at least help you prepare for one that is about to begin.
