Stages of Education

For parents and teachers, a template on educating children according to the Islamic tradition.

0 to 7 years – Let them play with love and affection.

7 to 14 years – Teach them with dignity.

14 to 21 years – Be their companion and friend and offer advice.

21 years and over – They will be devoted to you.

  1. waldorf has a similar breakdown. i’ve used this many times in my parent education work. it does resonate with people. thanks for posting it 🙂

    • I had no idea about the waldorf breakdown. It does make sense though and research backs it up at least for the early years. I wish I had access to some of the earlier papers that I’ve read, but the connections made in infancy/toddler/preschool and early years of childhood translate to stronger connections in adolescence and teen years. Thank you for the encouragement and teaching me something new! 🙂

  2. Thanks for posting this Omaira. I’m looking for the “source” for this as I’m doing my first year of Waldorf teacher training and plan on doing a comparative study between Waldorf and Islamic educational models. And as was commented earlier there is a similar breakdown in Waldorf education.

    • Thank you for your comment Zarina! I am actually searching for a source for this one as well. It’s been attributed to the companions Ali, as well as Abu Bakr. So I need to verify. As soon as I have it I’ll post it here. You should if you have the chance check out islamicteachereducation.com as we have a number of resources and posts about Islamic educational models. I hope this helps. 🙂
