Colossians 3:20: “Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing unto the Lord.”
Again, it has been rightly said that delayed obedience is disobedience. This is the problem with the modern disciplinary method of “counting to three.” It teaches that obedience may be delayed. We should teach our children from an early age quickly to obey. As a child grows older, into the teen years, it is not inappropriate for a child respectfully to seek explanation and reasoning on any command they might not understand or need to clarify. But this should only be done respectfully and with a spirit of, “Yes, I will do what you ask, but I would seek this clarification.”
He then adds:
When you become a parent you realize how much your parents did for you. In the natural process of time, the tables begin to turn and you may be given opportunity to serve them even as they served you.
