An Islamic framework for parenting children in the 8 – 15 years

مَثَلُ الَّذِي يَتَعَلَّمُ الْعِلْمَ فِي صِغَرِهِ كَالنَّقْشِ‏ عَلَى‏ الْحَجَرِ وَ مَثَلُ الَّذِي يَتَعَلَّمُ الْعِلْمَ فِي‏كِبَرِهِ كَالَّذِي يَكْتُبُعَلَى الْمَاءِ

The example of the one who learns in his childhood is like the example of the carving into a stone. And the example of the one who learns in his old age, is like the example of the one who writes on water.” – Prophet Muḥammad (ṣ)
