Train and equip your children with skills and tools to help them thrive. Teach them to be the best and the most useful to themselves and society.
And don’t forgot, before you teach you have to have knowledge. “You cannot teach or share what you do not have or what you do not know.”
Our children will often replicate in their homes the examples they see set by their parents. We are probably doing what we saw our parents do. Sometimes our parents don’t get it right. We have to be able to recognize and not repeat with our spouse or our children the things we knew were wrong.
At the end of the day, we shall be called to account and held responsible for what we did or did not do for our children.
May Allah continue to guide us to raise our children in the best manner. Amin.
