A thought from the scriptures

Children, obey your parents in all things: for this is well pleasing to the Lord. . . .

And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men. - Col. 3:20, 23

"The best source of instruction, guidance and counsel that most of you . . . have is your parents," said Elder Joseph B. Wirthlin of the Council of the Twelve at the priesthood session of the 1988 October general conference. "In the divine wisdom of our Heavenly Father, each of you was born to parents who arrived on this earth a few years ahead of you. They have been over the ground you . . . are covering now. They have learned what leads to success and happiness and what leads to misery and sorrow.

"Seek counsel, listen to them and learn from them. In our society, young people often see parents as the past and friends as the future. Magazines, movies and music made for teenagers often emphasize going your own way and dismissing parents as naive. Avoid that kind of thinking; it is false. Your parents are wise. They have a maturity that comes only from experience. The Lord has given them the fundamental task of teaching, guiding and caring for you and helping you prepare for the challenges that are necessary for your growth and progress."
