  1. That time again where I talk about Child-parent toxic relationship so all here can prevent this from happening, either to your own children or maybe just you been/ are going through this without realising? As the child? So, a toxic parent can involve one or both parents; always criticising children's choices, constantly putting children down (make them feel like failures), WHATEVER the child does it's NEVER enough to please them, if another child goes on a course or opens Business it's fantastic and mind blowing! If own child does it, parent notifies them they will fail because they do not know anything about it. Can be more things on the list. The top list covers me and my sis as we have been through this by our Mum. My sister is living a life that is unique and very, very difficult path to walk on. My sister default mood is strict, straight to the point and she has 0 interest in marriage, 0 interest in social life and 0 interest in out-going (something that normal people do) my dad just watches and not try to change her (he never tried). On top my sis is a complete miser, something rubbed off from mum. And dad was NEVER there for us when we were young, never participated in our interest and 0 guidance. So, if you have young children (who are below 15) it's not too late. Be there for them, spend some time with them, teach them good values, encourage them to do better, show them you care for them... Don't leave it all on society/ school then expect them to follow your wishes once they're 18. Even if you spend less time per week with them make sure they're up to standard with life, education and give them the best teachings possible. Alternatively if you wish your children to turn out to be like my sister, who's over 31 now! It's entirely up to you but you must accept the consequence which comes with it. Old members on here, maybe you read these types of posts before? GOOD! I drill it in wherever possible. New members, am glad you took the time out to read this especially if you are new parents.

    VJKK VJKF I think I mentioned in a previous topic that my mum is having a baby. The reason why I chose to make this topic is because I want to give this child the support I never had. I want to inspire this child to be a proper Gursikh. The support that I never had from my parents like the frequent comments of: "You're going too deep into Sikhi", "Guru Ji never told girls to wear a dastar" I want this child to become a proper Sikh and not have to struggle to find Vaheguru amidst Kalyug. The rest of my brothers and sisters are slowly coming into Sikhi but I want this child to know that he/she has my full support and that they can come to me if they need any help. I asked my mum the other day: "Can the baby hear what we are hearing" (because she was listening to songs in the car) and she said yes. I said to her: "Listen to gurbani so that the baby is not hearing all this ganth (rubbish)". She said: "I want the baby to be a mix, religious and listens to songs". I was confused because you can't be a "mix". I didn't ask her any more questions but I started thinking of what I could do to help this child. That's why I made this topic. What can I do to get this child into Sikhi at an early age? In the car my mum listens to stuff like Shiv Strotam and stuff I've never heard before because they aren't Sikhi but they are actually a Hindu prayer. I am not quite sure what to do or even if this is even right or wrong. I am asking for the Sangat's opinion on this and some guidance. VJKK VJKF
  4. There's A LOT of questions that Sikh Women have about what Paath or Nitnem they should do when Pregnant or what they should be doing before pregnancy, etc. There's also questions about what to do after the baby is born and just about family life in general. For example, do mothers have to observe Amrit Vela? Do ALL Sikhs need to observe Amrit Vela? Fortunately, there's a new non-profit organization that's completely DEVOTED to educating about Sikh family life... and it's called... Sikh Family Life (!): https://www.SikhFamilyLife.com/ There's a whole series on Mother's Duties and Responsibilities (starts BEFORE pregnancy): https://www.sikhfamilylife.com/maa-de-farz-series-a-mothers-responsibilities/ ALL pregnant mamas should be doing Sukhmani Sahib, here's why: https://www.sikhfamilylife.com/2018/04/a-secret-power-of-sikh-mothers/ And for the scoop on Amrit Vela (and why it's SOOOOO Important for Sikhs): https://www.sikhfamilylife.com/2018/06/the-low-down-on-amrit-vela/ There's even a post on one way to teach kids Sikhi: https://www.sikhfamilylife.com/2018/06/one-fabulous-way-to-teach-kids-sikhi/ Hopefully this resource is helpful to some of you searching for answers on this incredibly important topic of Sikhi, pregnancy, and motherhood!
  5. We must watch it and hope they get it right. An Inside Out London special, uncovers the hidden scandal of sexual grooming of young Sikh girls by Muslim men. Breaking their silence, they speak to Chris Rogers about their experiences at the hands of these predatory men and why justice is being denied to them by their own community and the police.
  6. www.walkfree.org/share/indiachildslaverypetition Last year, politicians in India passed up on the chance to protect millions of children from the nightmare of modern slavery. The Child and Adolescent Labour Abolition Bill would prohibit the employment of children up until 14 years of age and yet, the Indian Parliament failed to put it to a vote during its session last December. Every day that this bill is delayed, the children of India remain at risk of being bought and sold to work in unimaginable conditions of sex slavery, bonded labour and domestic servitude. Child rights groups in India and the rest of the world have called on the Indian Parliament to prioritise the Child and Adolescent Labour Abolition Bill but we need your help to build massive public pressure that leaders in India cannot ignore. Let's join to ask Indian politicians to pass the Child and Adolescent Labour Abolition Bill.
