There is a rabbinic rabbinical obligation on the every father to educate his child children to fulfill mitzvot even before he is they reach the age of [[Bar Mitzvah]]'ed or she is /Bat Mitzvah'ed.<ref>Sefer Chinuch Yisrael (p. 59) writes that chinuch Chinuch is a rabbinic mitzvahrabbinical Mitzvah, and quotes the Chaye Adam (66:1) who writes that this is a mitzvah midivrei kabbalah Mitzvah Midivrei Kabbalah (institution of the neviNevi'im). </ref> The age at which this obligation begins varies according to the mitzvahMitzvah. Below are the details of this mitzvahMitzvah.
==Who is obligated in Chinuch?==
# While the majority of the poskim Poskim hold that chinuch Chinuch only applies to the father, some say it also applies to the mother. <ref>Sefer Chinuch Yisrael (p. 61). See further in the Magen Avraham 343, S"A HaRav 343, Mishna Brurah 616:5, Aruch HaShulchan 343, and Pri Megadim E"A 225:5. </ref>
==Daily Mitzvot==
# Regarding a child's obligation to pray, see the [[Obligation_to_pray#Children]] page.
# Some say that children from the age of 6 should say Birkat Hamazon. <ref>[ Rabbi Mansour on] writes that parents should ensure that children from the age of 6 say Birkat HaMazon.</ref>
# While there is a prohibition in saying G-d's Name (Ado-nai), when it is isn't warranted, the prohibition is waived when being used in the process of chinuchChinuch. Therefore, it is permitted(obligatory, rather) to say the full beracha[[Bracha]], with Shem and malchutMalchut, in order to teach a child how and when to say what berachot[[Brachot]]. <ref>The gemara Gemara (Brachot 53b) says that one doesn’t say amen after the bracha Bracha of a katan when he is just saying a bracha Bracha as he is being taught the brachotBrachot. The Rambam (Brachot 1:15) codifies as halacha. The Kesef Mishna there writes that it’s clearly implied that the teacher is permitted to say the brachot Brachot with hashem’s name to teach the children how to say the brachot Brachot and when the children repeat the bracha Bracha after him, since the bracha Bracha is only for chinuchChinuch, one doesn’t answer amen. Shulchan Aruch 215:3 rules that if a child is saying a bracha Bracha as he is learning from his teacher one doesn’t answer amen, but if a child says a bracha Bracha in order to exempt himself from some obligation (meaning saying a bracha Bracha when he is obligated to say it), then one should answer amen.* Mishna Brurah 215:14 writes that it is permitted for the teacher to say the brachot Brachot with hashem’s name to teach the children how to say the brachotBrachot. Although saying a bracha Bracha for chinuch Chinuch is permitted, saying a bracha Bracha as one is learning such as an adult who finds the text of a bracha Bracha in the gemara as he is learning should not say the bracha Bracha with hashem’s name as one is reading the gemara. However, Yalkut Yosef 215:15 writes that in order to teach a child how to say brachot Brachot one may say them with hashem’s Hashem’s name, however, once the child knows how to make a bracha Bracha and he just needs help in saying the bracha Bracha one should say it without hashem’s ashem’s name.</ref>
==Chinuch Attitude==
# A life devoted to HaShem is the most pleasurable and fulfilling one. Therefore, the chinuch Chinuch stage must be pleasing and joyful for children. The proper attitude and approach for children to learn is through "darkei noDarchei No'am"; (pleasant ways). <ref>{{NoSource}}</ref>
# A parent and/or teacher should generally be careful not to be excessively forceful. There are several cases where Talmudic personalities praised their behavior of not being "makpid"(strict) in their home over their wives and children even though they lived a life filled with mitzvot.<ref>Gitin 7a, </ref>
