Obedience is like a key to every door. According to me, being obedient to parents is to respect them. Sounds like old fashioned?

It is not old fashioned at all. I am obedient to my old parents and parents-in-law. I think it is a way to show my respect to them. I would feel uneasy if I said or did something to make them unhappy. Parents have given us life and contribute so much to us on our way to being growing up and even when we have our own family. They still concern us so much. I love them and will always be obedient to them.

Thaks for not considering me as old fashioned. As I said in most Asian countries, the parents are better off than in other countries. This is attributed to the children giving utmost respect to parents and looking after them when they are aged. This keeps family unity in tact.

You are welcome. That is absolutely true. We do take care of our parents when they are aged.

I found that obeying parent brings good luck. This is from my personal experience. I take my parent to travel in nice place and a while after that I recovered from a sickness that I had for 15 years. Afterall, parent has done great thing to us.

You are absolutely right. But one should not be obedient to parent in anticipation of good luck. In case if luck never checks in, people should not become disobedient to parents.

I guess so, I'd like to think I'm an obedient daughter to my parents cause I know I respected them and still do unitll now that I'm married and away from them. My parents imparted good moral values in us which I plan to do when I have kids of my own.

i was never the very obedient kind. but my parents did not mind that because i always had good morals. i never did bad things. so my parents soon started to give me advices instead of commands. i must say i always appreciated their advices although i did not always take them into consideration.

Obedience does not mean taking commands. But what you have narrated is really interesting facts which may happen in many a family and that is something different and welcome. Thanks for your response, I enjoyed reading it.

Dear ssh123, All my brothers and sisters are very obedient to our parents that means we respect them and their wishes and requests were honoured without a question. We believe them and love them because we wanted that they should live happily and without any worries. Our parents happiness is most important things to us. It is not obedient and our love for them.

Thanks. Your response has great strength in cementing the thoughts of those who were sitting on tenterhooks this way or that way. In Hindu family, it is a great tradition to respect parents. Parents need not know about I.T. Industry, but still they can offer greatest solution to our present day to day problems. They are nothing but friend, philosopher and guide. Thanks. once again.

I respected my parents and their advice - which I followed, so I could be considered obedient, but some think it is slavery - respecting someone's wish, those who are older and more experienced is not slavery.
