Wa Alaikum As Salaam,

You should make personal supplications to Allah for this.

Parents will be held accountable to Allah for the sins of the children, if they did not give them a good upbringing, since they have failed in their responsibility which Allah Has placed upon them.

If however, they had given their children a good upbringing, but the children committed sins, then the parents will not be accountable to Allah, since they have fulfilled their responsibility.

And Allah knows best,
