Family education is education carried out by someone in the household or family environment. The family education system is a major element in lifelong education because it does not include formalities, time, method, age, facilities, and so on. Departing from the urgency of this article aims to provide an idea of the importance of character education in the family, this is because it is often found parents who ignore their responsibilities in the family more specifically in providing character education to children. Basically, each parent is the person most responsible for the education of their children. More than that parents have been given the mandate of Allah SWT to make their children devout and obedient to worship in accordance with the provisions set out in the Koran and Hadith. Through good parental education, good child characters will be born. Thus parents should not only give up their children's education entirely to the educational institution or school, but they must pay more attention to the education of their children in their family environment, because family is the main factor in the formation of character the child.
