Are Parents Responsible if a Child Leaves Islam?

Are parents responsible if a child decides to leave Islam even if parents did teach Islam, and the rules to the child during childhood?

Salaam, a parent can only teach their children, but cannot force a child to believe in something. Islamic law prohibits forced conversion, following the Quranic principle that there is “no compulsion in religion.” [Quran 2:256] Thus, the best thing you can do is pray to Allah (swt) to guide your child and also try to give resources to your child.
