Children and upbringing

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q: I have a five year old daughter and a 5 year old grand daughter. My grand daughter has very very bad manners and bad character. She has no way of speaking even to her own parents, back chats, lies etc. The problem is my five year old daughter is picking up all these bad habits. We live just fifteen min utes away from each other so naturally we meet often. What do I do to save my daughter from picking up all the bad habits. She tries to imitate my grand daughter in every way. Jazakallah for your time.


A: Call them together and explain to them in a gentle and loving manner that this is not the way to behave.

And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
