Episode 17: As an adult, how do I honor my parents who expect me to heed their authority the way I did when I was a child? (Pt. 2)

Episode highlights:

  • If our children are not becoming less and less dependent upon us as they get older, we’re doing something wrong. The book of Proverbs assumes that independence is the goal toward which we raise children.
  • When we have control issues and make our children the pawns of those issues, it is beyond cruel. We’re setting them up to fail when they are grown and need to be able to make independent decisions.
  • Failing to prepare our children for adulthood sets them up for problems in their future marriages and harms them spiritually.
  • To honor one’s parents is to treat them with great respect, and it is a lifelong obligation.
