Being gifted with children is a great blessing from Allāh ta'ālā. For any blessing we receive we need to do shukr, i.e. be grateful to Allāh ta'ālā. True shukr meets the following requirements:
1. Realise the blessing is the result of the Grace of Allāh ta'ālā and that it has come to you without your being deserving of it.
2. Acknowledge your gratitude in your heart and express it verbally as well.
3. Use the blessing in the way Allāh ta'ālā wants you to, and observe the rules and limits He has set for it.
As with all blessings, Allāh ta'ālā has set rules and limits regarding the blessing of children too, e.g. when to be lenient, when to reprimand, what to teach them, what to keep them away from etc. Following these rules when dealing with children is called ta'līm and tarbiyah.Read more: Ta'līm and Tarbiyah
Islam teaches us to fulfil rights, not to demand rights.
