On the eight day of fasting

Training your children to fast is not easy. Many of us always in dilemma on when is the best to introduce our children about fasting. Which is the best age? If they are too young like at the tender age of 4 or 5, should we ask them to start?

My hubby and I have trained our eldest daughter, Fathini, to fast since she was 5 years old. We didn't ask her to fast the whole day. Like the others, she started to fast only until afternoon. Only by 6, she managed to fast the whole day for few days.

It's a bit different with our second daughter, Hafizah. She has started to fast last year but she fasted only until 10 a.m. This year, we wake her up everyday for "sahur" (eating before the morning prayer-Subuh). She managed to fast only until 1 p.m. everyday. ONLY TODAY, she managed to hold until Maghrib.Alhamdulillah. Though she whined a lot today, she promised to keep trying while the others giving her the supports. Hopefully she'll try again tomorrow. But I won't really force her beyond her limit.

How are your kids during this fasting month? Are they doing well in fasting?
