The past month has seen Pakistan experience one of its worst natural disasters in decades.
On December 29, 2017, an unconfirmed death toll of at least 1,834 people, including at least 2,923 children, was reported in the province of Paktika.
The government of the country has blamed a rogue group of armed militants.
The Pakistani government has responded by imposing a curfew.
In the aftermath of the outbreak, some people have gone into hiding, and some schools in the country are closed.
But there is hope, and a growing number of Pakistani parents are making the transition to adopting a more positive outlook.
