Fifty percent of all that is mentally accepted by the children is taken from the parents and the atmosphere at home and the rest is taken from the society existing around them. If the atmosphere at home is not peaceful and parents are quarrelsome the children will also adopt the habits of their parents. Gradually this habit establishes in children firmly initially they fight among themselves and then they start fighting with their parents. Since parents lack mutual understanding they overlook and ignore the children. This results in rudeness of the children and they become disobedient. Children of those parents who live in harmony and have understanding or at least they do not bring their differences before their children remain obedient and at their parents’ service.
Not only undue love and affection but undue harshness also spoils the kids. It is quite a disturbing issue, may Allah save parents from this.
Besides change of attitude to correct the disobedient kids if the following could be practiced the children by the grace of Allah almighty would become obedient.

بَل ھُوَ قُرَآنٌ مَجِیْدٌٓ فِی لَوحِ مَحْفُوْظٍ
in an audible but non-disturbing voice while standing towards the head of the sleeping child. This is required to be done at least for 11 days and at the most for 21 days.
