In addition to physical presence, the birth of a child is an existential event. The presence of a will, a difference, and a purpose.
Through his poetry Kahlil Gibran said :
Your children are not your children
they are children of life, they miss their own
They are born through you but not from you
Although they live with you but they are not yours
The presence of a child is a responsibility that is not measured by the degree of compliance or defiance toward his parents, but accountability for togetherness based on the capacity of each. Parents are always grateful and obliged to educate their children properly. While every child is required to respect and behave properly to his parents.
More than all the consequences of being together, to both of them (parents and children) are required to always “go back” to their origin. That is, not just the “back” when death came to pick up, but also “return” to the submission and compliance with all laws of God.
