How can the parents deal with children when they are heedless about prayers (Salaah)?
Disciplining children and raising them with the prayer may be summed up as follows: (1) there must be a real-life example, in parents being keen to offer the prayer on time and regularly. (2) The father should be very keen to take his son with him to pray and the mother should be keen to tell her daughter to pray regularly at home. (3) Offering moral and material support such as gifts, and offering words of praise. (4) The parents should never tire of reminding, advising, and disciplining.
