  • 2. Case Study Mawsil's and his family have recently arrived in Australia as refugees. Mawsil's wife was killed in lraq. He is a sole parent with two children, a four year old boy named Aban and a seven year old girl named Yasman. Mawsil has limited English. He said he is finding it very difficult to run the family household and Yasman has taken on a lot of her mother's tasks within the household. Aban is a very quiet child. He often sits in the cubby house nursing a doll. He spends a lot of time in the 'kitchen play space' with the other children. They take turns in making and serving food. Mawsil once found Aban with a doll and was angry about it. He took him by the arm saying "No, No" and sat him down with the trucks and gave him a truck. He spoke to him angrily in their home language (Arabic). He looked at the educator and shook his head. Sometimes the children serve afternoon tea to each other. One day Aban had put on an apron and was serving sandwiches with tongs when Mawsil came to pick him up early. He shouted in 'Broken English' that his son was doing women's work and he didn't like it. Aban was upset but didn't say anything. A new support worker spoke to the father and child in Arabic. You are not sure of what was said. australia-as-refugees-mawsils-wife-was-killed-in-lraq-he-is-a-so.html
