The thoughts of an American Muslim and mother of four raising her children in small town USA with her Egyptian husband.

I couldn't make this stuff up.
Yes, for those of you who couldn't really read it it does say: "Finally, a system that trains your kids to do their chores while you relax in your recliner!" Sit Jr sit, good kid. "Child earns tokens redeemable for fun family interaction." And if they don't earn their tokens no interaction? "Children using this system... Acquire valuable tools they can use the rest of their lives." Yeah, like how to train their kids to do the housework so they can sit in their recliners! Not to mention how the blatant manipulation skills will give them an edge in the business world.
I am a mother to four wonderful kids and the wife to one wonderful Egyptian! We live in a small town in the Midwest and work in our small businesses. I am also a Waldorf preschool teacher and childcare provider, a backyard chicken lady, a part time homeschooler, and a generally crunchy mama (think hijabi in birks).
