“Take care of your children. Look after. Know. Be friends with your children. Be friends with your daughters and your sons.”
Saleha Jaffer, founder of Families Against Stress and Trauma, hosts a workshop in Streatham with Somali mothers and daughter to raise awareness of the work of the group and the devastating effect of children travelling to war zones such as Syria and Iraq on the family.
We also meet the mothers who realise the importance of spotting the signs of radicalisation and communication with their children to prevent them from travelling.
