As long as one’s children are not married, there should be complete transparency between them and the parents. The child cannot be left free to do as he pleases without any rules and restrictions.
Together with conducting ta’leem daily, we need to spend quality time with them, in which we take some report from them regarding the day’s happenings. In this way they would be able to discuss their problems with us and we would know what is running through their minds and be able to correct that which requires correction. If the child is given the correct direction, together with being fed halaal, insha-Allah the child would grow up correctly.
