We don't need to talk to our kids about sensitive topics. But we have to also be careful that if you don't know how to do it, you're cause more damage.
So you do need to learn.
Sometimes, sometimes, that's the role of a community, a community will provide that safety net. So if the family is unable
to do one thing, then the community will take over, you know, if if not all parents are basically equipped to teach their kids about different issues about about old issues, particularly sensitive issues.
So the parents the need to do their part, while understanding of their limitations, and then they need to point their kids to resources, and sometimes the these are local resources. And for the older kids, they may be
sort of route national or international resources. So if the parents are not comfortable addressing a particular issue,
then they, they don't basically give up. They don't abandon their kids, but they point them to resources. It's, it's the masajid responsibility to make those resources available locally.
We need to have people that can talk to the kids about different issues
that they find
sort of sensitive or problematic, gender, atheism, you know, existence of God, all of those issues that that kids are bombarded by, you know, at school and college and so on. So, I think that the parents need to learn, I mean, they need to, you know,
equip themselves with whatever it is need the address those issues with their kids.
And the Learn and attend seminars, can read and listen to lectures and talks and all of that stuff. But after all of that, if they are still unable, then they need to point to their kids to local resources or regional, national, or even international resource
