I agree and it was hard for me to find information about rasing kids. I bought a book called raising kids in islaam because it said it had quranic support. Most of it was hadiths but some quranic qoutes on parenting. Basically the same rules we live by we should instill in our children. We have them praying at 7 and 9 and they dress modernly and fashionably but modestly and are defenders and they know they are not supposed to be mean or bullies. We teach them to be kind to parents and elders and that when they do good( works, attitude etc...) they get good and when they do bad( acts, attitudes, etc...) that they get bad. We do not teach them the parenting hadiths, eating a certain way or sleeping in one side. We keep the hadiths out of it. I highlight in all the books that I buy that have quran and sunnah sayings and I highlight the quran verses and see if they really pertain to the subject that the author is trying to support. Main point is that we should parent our kids to live by the same rules and ways we do. Kids are supposed to be kind to parents and in modern societies kids are rebellious so i think this verse was placed in the Quran to remind kids that t hey are not to rebel and treat parents badly like alot of modern day kids treat there parents and family. I also think like I said before that we shoudl raise them like how we are supposed to behave and act children see and copy what youdo and not so much what you say if your not doing it. I hope my thoughts can help but they are only my thoughts and in no way the quran or GOD.
