Our Gathering Discussions
Gathering report:(by a madar)
Our discussion was as following:
How to have the kids speak Farsi and why is it so important for all the
parents to have their kids speak the language. It seems like the most
concern most of the parents have is the languange. Reza brought up a good
point of why is it so important? besides being able to talk to their grand
parents. Do we have more important issues in raising our children or this
is the most important isuues of all?
We also discussed about peer pressure and where to stop our children.
Where and when do we say no to their unreasonable (in Parents opinion)
request. Do we stop them when they get 10 barbies or when they want to put
make up on or when they have millions of posters of Leonardo DeCapprio on
their walls. If we don't start early would this be the beggining of peer
pressure and one lead to another and it will get out of hand by the time
they are teenagers and it would be too late to stop them.

About peer pressure some years ago my sister in law was having problem
with his son about what he wanted to wear @ school(because everyone else
was wearing it & it was cool)My husband told our nephew Do you want to
be a leader or a follower as I was listening I thought the child has no
clue what he is talking about!but to my amazement it actually worked.
