A wise son maketh a glad father: but a foolish man despiseth his mother.
"Learn now to show respect and gratitude," said Elder Russell M. Nelson of the Quorum of the Twelve during the April 1999 general conference. "Remember that your mother is your mother. She should not need to issue orders. Her wish, her hope, her hint should provide direction that you would honor. Thank her and express your love for her. And if she is struggling to rear you without your father, you have a double duty to honor her."
