Many parents do not understand the concept of faith education in children. This could be based on an assumption that children are still too young to be educated in matters of faith. Whereas the family, in this case the parents, is an educational institution that is directly related to the child since he was born. So there is a thought that the family is believed to have a very strong influence on children’s religious education. This happens because the relationship that exists between parents and children for 24 hours is very important in education. Zakiah Daradjat isan education expert who also believes that the importance of faith education is given to children as early as possible, so the purpose of this study is to find out how Zakiah Daradjat’s thoughts about children’s religious education are in the family.
