My name is Randa, and I am an electrical engineer, but I work on web design and creative industry. I met a lot of mothers from different minority backgrounds are more of a self-centred even before COVID-19. Which affects kids life and wellbeing. I also live in Westminster and once my kids started to go to school I was watching how other Arab speaking mothers deals with their kids using English language in their normal daily life while doctors recommend to keep speaking the mother language at home or whenever possible as kids will get smarter and develop more brain smart centres, and language skills as well. When I asked about the reason, the most common answers was: We try to go with the flow, and when I asked about; how do you teach mother languages? They said; we use YouTube videos for practising, or go to specially schools on Saturday, as we do not have a tool, enough resources or books to use for homeschooling.
After number of trials I designed this workbook, and made field testing. The result and reviews from different mothers all was 4.5 to 5 out of 5. Now I passed the pilot phase and I get orders, this is way I thought of offering it as a DIY to reduce cost on mothers, which is more helpful for any Mum and children at any age, in fact anyone can use it to learn any language numbers, and shapes as well.
Now and after I tested the idea, I found out that it can be an icebreaker between families and can integrate more kids.
I wish if I can introduce awareness topics using this book or other related activities.
In the future I am thinking of registering a Mums' enterprise for church street neighbourhoods to help solve learning difficulties and children social integrations.
