Excerpt: "You carry a child that does not understand how to pray, and you place him in the front row with you behind the Imaam? The people are only being silent out of courtesy, because this child is not in prayer, he may not even be upon purity, maybe not even in his physical body. This is because you just took him from your home without teaching him how to purify himself and how to pray to begin with. This is erroneous, what you should be doing is teach him how to purify himself and how to pray in your home firstly, then you teach him where and how to stand in the row [in the Masjid]."
Shaykh Muhammad Amaan al Jaami' (rahimahullaah)
