    He said that as globalisation has presented difficult challenges for parents, they must become examplary role models for their children and thus, must understand the importance of communication skills.

    She said the workshop provided awareness on the rights and responsibilities of parents and children.

    It also taught the importance of strengthening the Aqidah of husbands and wives and the importance of providing Islamic education to their children as a family institution, she added.

    Officer from the Community Development Department (JAPEM) at the Ministry of Culture, Youth and Sports (MCYS) Siti Alifah binti Awang Osman, an observer for the workshop, summarised that to build a happy family, the family institutions need to be strengthened.

    She said a number of things need to be taken seriously by parents including inculcating Islamic appreciation in the family, consistently disciplining children, identifying positive and negative influence of social media as well as asking about their wellbeing and feelings.

    The Ra’es of KUPU SB shared that building a Sakinah Mawaddah Wa Rahmah family institution is done through a number of matters including, taking the rights of children into account, practicing piety and Sunnah such as reciting Doa.
