Children as God’s gifts and trusts need special attention and hence have various rights according Islamic teachings. To mention all duties regarding children takes and needs a very long time, but as an example it is nice to refer a case.
Imam Sadiq A.S (the sixth Imam) has said:

"Some things for the child are incumbent upon his/her father:
- Selecting a (good) mother for him/her
- giving him/her a good name
- and exerting the utmost effort in raising him/her well
(Tuhaf al-‘Uqul, p.238)

And also Imam Sajjad (a.s) said:

Right of your child is that you know he (or she) belongs to you and he depends on you in all his good and improper deeds in this world. And you are responsible for his training to goods and guiding him to his Lord's path and helping him in obeying Allah. And you will reward according to this duty. So be the best supervisor so that you may be excused before your God.

Resale' Al Hoquq (Imam Asjjad)

 Salam brother/sister

Imam sajjad (as) in a book named “Risalah Alhoghough” has mentioned the rights of people in this world and in hereafter.

One of these rights is the Rights of Child:

وَ أَمَّا حَقُّ وَلَدِكَ فَتَعْلَمُ أَنَّهُ مِنْكَ وَ مُضَافٌ إِلَيْكَ فِي عَاجِلِ الدُّنْيَا بِخَيْرِهِ وَ شَرِّهِ وَ أَنَّكَ مَسْئُولٌ عَمَّا وُلِّيتَهُ مِنْ حُسْنِ الْأَدَبِ وَ الدَّلَالَةِ عَلَى رَبِّهِ وَ الْمَعُونَةِ لَهُ عَلَى طَاعَتِهِ فِيكَ‏ وَ فِي نَفْسِهِ فَمُثَابٌ عَلَى ذَلِكَ وَ مُعَاقَبٌ فَاعْمَلْ فِي أَمْرِهِ عَمَلَ الْمُتَزَيِّنِ بِحُسْنِ أَثَرِهِ عَلَيْهِ فِي عَاجِلِ الدُّنْيَا الْمُعَذِّرِ إِلَى رَبِّهِ فِيمَا بَيْنَكَ وَ بَيْنَهُ بِحُسْنِ الْقِيَامِ عَلَيْهِ وَ الْأَخْذِ لَهُ مِنْهُ وَ لا قُوَّةَ إِلَّا بِاللَّهِ‏ “.


The right of your child is that you should know that your child belongs to you and is from you and he is with you in this world with all his good and bad deeds.

So you are responsible in teaching him good conducts, and leading and guiding him toward Allah and help him to obey him.

So act towards his affairs the act of one who knows that he will be awarded for doing good to him and punished for doing evil to him. 

(Tohaf al oghoul, page 255)
