This course traces the development of children from preconception to early adulthood with special attention paid to the four major developmental milestones: physical, cognitive, emotional and (most important though not commonly discussed) spiritual milestones of each stage. The course necessarily begins with a discussion on choosing the proper spouse and the true essence of both marriage and intimacy. The discussion then shifts to the effects of pregnancy, labor and delivery of the development of the child. This is followed by tracing the development of the child from the perspective of each of the four major milestones from his/her earliest days through each year of childhood and teenhood. Parenting advice is shared at each stage and milestone. The information in the course is based on Qur’anic and Hadith references and makes use of both classical and modern educational philosophies and theories.
