ABIDING: The Positive and Practical Podcast

Season 1, Ep. 14

Its the time of year many parents dread (and some celebrate...): Back to School! With many Nurseries, Schools and Colleges having welcomed back students of all ages; it is important to remember the Little Ones, who are saying Goodbye to Mummy and Daddy for the very first time and starting a new routine, or returning to a routine after 24/7 attention over the summer holidays. This can be a very difficult time for young families, for both first time parents and experienced ones.

But help is at hand. The ABIDING podcast warmly welcome SAMIA CHALOUHI, the CEO of officially Outstanding FUN FIRST NURSERY, Doha, Qatar. Samia offers help, support and guidance on SEPARATION ANXIETY.

Ranging from Soothing Strategies for 1 - 2 and 3 - 4 year-olds, to the Five Wrong Ways to Say Goodbye, and specific advice on how different children express separation anxiety including "The Crier" and "The Silent Observer", Samia's experience and knowledge will be a great help and support to both parents and educators everywhere!!! Enjoy.

  • 30. ABIDING: Remembering Our Friend

    We have hit the milestone of 30 episodes of Abiding. A bittersweet milestone as this podcast would not exist in a perfect world, with one of the factors leading to its inception being the loss of Steven Carne. We approach the sad anniversary of his final choice, so a group of his friends have gathered to celebrate happy memories as we talk about our shared laughs and experiences, but this being Abiding; we look at what can and should be done for young men, and adults in general who show the same types of red flags and calls-for-help as Steven did. This podcast exists just to help one person, because Steven could not be helped. So please, look, stop and listen for those who may need any kind of help, as we remember our friend.

In my opinion Religion shoud be about leading a better life and helping others to do the same. I have discovered this talk from the well-respected scholar, NOUMAN ALI KHAN who offers an informed, fascinating, balanced, view on the teachings of Islam for all to have a better understanding.
