Advise for parents who complain about their children's misbehaviour

Q: My twins are 4 years old and are very stubborn and always fighting and not listening to parents. Please advise a dua or prescribe a wazifa to bring them on the right path.

A: Normally, they behave in this manner because of eating and drinking too many sweet things, processed foods or watching what they are not supposed to be watching or playing with children that they are not supposed to be playing with. If they are affected by any of these then don't make it available for them. Gradually give them the habit of reciting the kalimah and durood shareef, and explain to them in simple language regarding Allah Ta`ala and Nabi (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). You may recite Surah Faatihah and blow on them as well as the food that they eat. Make dua for them as well.

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