Major Takeaways All Arab Moms Can Learn From The New Season OF AlRawabi

Season 2 of AlRawabi School for Girls came back, not just with a new cast but with a new deep-rooted dive into the world of TikTok.

Just from the first episode, you’ll see the girls gathered around filming TikTok challenges from the get-go. Along with that, we see how Arab parents deal with their young daughters in this digitally fueled world. With it being an eye-opening season, these are all the things parents can learn from the new season.

Don’t Push For Perfection

Perfect grades, countless extracurriculars, dressing in the best new clothes, keeping a fit physique, and more fill an endless list of requirements a mother vying for perfection awaits from her daughter.

That was the fate of Tasneem, AlRawabi’s it girl whose mother’s expectations placed a heavy weight on her throughout the season, a weight that always made her feel not good enough.

That pressure always comes at a cost; that’s why it’s better to see what your daughter wants and support her rather than carve her into her own unrealistic image.

Give Them A Breather

At AlRawabi, many of the characters end up in major dilemmas, the kind that require support and a certain level of understanding. One of these characters is Sarah, who starts off barely noticeable by everyone in the school and then rises to the ranks once she becomes TikTok famous.

That fame comes with a cost because just as she rose up, she immediately fell down when a certain video of her got leaked in the school. In such a situation, rather than breaking her down, put yourself in her shoes. Give your daughter the breather and space to get back on her feet.

Learn About TikTok

We know that many parents might completely dismiss this idea and think that it’s a waste of time, but if you have a teenage daughter, there’s a big chance that she’s using TikTok.

By just opening the app and swiping through it, you’ll learn how it works, and you’ll see what’s trending and what’s everyone watching. This is good in two ways: it’ll help you get involved in your daughter’s interests and it’ll give you an idea of what to expect in the world of TikTok.

With the new season of AlRawabi, parents get to be exposed to how high school operates in the digital age, so our last tip would be to just tune in to the show. That alone will give you a glimpse into what your daughters are exposed to on a daily basis.
