As long as a child lives at home with his parents, the child should
obey his parents in all that they ask of him when it is for his good
or that of the family. "Children, obey your parents in
everything, for this pleases the Lord."
Children should also obey the reasonable directions of their teachers
and all to whom their parents have entrusted them. But if a child is
convinced in conscience that it would be morally wong to obey a
particular order, he must not do so.
As they grow up, children should continue to respect their parents.
They should anticipate their wishes, willingly seek their advice, and
accept their just admonitions. Obedience toward parents ceases with
the emancipation of the children; not so respect, which is always
owed to them. This respect has its roots in the fear of God, one of
the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
