Children with special needs, Emotional Regulation, Islamic education, Parental Emotion




In comparison to parents of typically developing children, parents of children with special needs are subject to elevated levels of stress. Without systematic and thorough support and aid from the government or charity groups, it is extremely challenging for these parents to give the finest care and nurture for their exceptional children. On the basis of the current module, it was determined that there is a deficit in the area of emotional regulation for parents of disabled children. For the establishment of a prosperous family, this paper will stress the initial debate regarding the emotional regulation of parents of disadvantaged children based on the Sunnah of the Prophet. Correct emotional regulation is essential for ensuring that parents can manage their emotions in order to prevent incorrect acts while raising children with special needs. This is due to the fact that the majority of incidents of neglect and abuse of children with disabilities are caused by a lack of parental emotional management skills. This article seeks to achieve an amount of objectives, namely: 1. issues and challenges of families with impaired children, 2. emotional regulation and its significance in managing challenged children, and 3. emotional regulation solutions for parenting disabled children in accordance with Islam. This work is based on library research using journal articles that highlight the most recent concerns and challenges experienced by parents with disabled children. In addition, references are made to literature on emotional regulation and its significance. The verses of the Quran and the hadith of the Prophet SAW were also studied in order to acquire Islamic instruction for the most effective emotional regulation, particularly in relation to the emotional strain felt by the worried parents. This article is seen crucial in offering parents with information and skills on emotional regulation tactics for parenting children with special needs. Not only can it assist parents in controlling their emotions to foster a healthy family environment, but it may also organize advocacy efforts over time towards the formation of an inclusive community.
