Receiving monthly newsletter of Salafvoice, sheikhs are giving advices to different aspects of life. This time: How to deal with children in puperty. Advices given are in arabic and distributed via tapes in certain mosques.

"Stop calling your children nicknames when they enter puperty."
"Be good with your daughters so they do not seek someone elses proximity just because of being desperate."
"Make sure that you include your children in decision making; ask them for example, what they want their mother to cook for them; or where they want to go on the weekend for their leisure time"

The girls from the village Elkerdany called - they ask how the project is getting along.
