Halocho #1019 – Educating children is a Mitzva

A father must educate his children to do all Mitzvot (Torah and Rabbinical) that are appropriate to their age.

One also needs to prevent a child from doing any sin which they are capable of relating to, starting with telling the truth, eating only Kosher and not carrying things on Shabbat (in areas where one may not carry, i.e where there is no Eruv.)

A child who stole must return the theft if it exists. If it no longer exists then they needn't return its value even after they becomes an adult. However, in heaven they will be required to account for the theft, so it's recommended to make amends.
