Q: Nowadays kids dont tend to listen to parents. They always want it there way either by staying in their own bedroom or come down with the family or even they are meant to be studying but they dont want to and if they do they’ll do it when they want even though advising them etc. So in this case what should one as parents do? Do they let them be how they want and just keep advising them. What should be done? Also what should be done if the parents and child argue because of that?
A: Parents are responsible for their children. There is no such a thing that they can be as they want. If these children experiment with drugs will you allow them. If they light a fire and set alight the house will you allow them.
And Allah Ta’ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
