Reading aloud to your child at bedtime is a great way to soothe your child especially when it forms part of the bedtime routine.

So I was delighted to read a wonderful post over at The Well-Read Muslim outlining how Muslim parents can help calm and relax their children at bedtime through the use of stories. The post describes what a parent can do in the event that s/he cannot be there in person to read. The solution? Provide your child with the an audio recording of stories or surahs from the Qur’an. You may even consider recording yourself reading aloud the story. Read more here.
