I remember when I was a kid I was thought to always follow my parents. Though sometimes I had a hard times doing so because you see we also had our own pride and character which is disrespecting. But why is it really important to follow them?

More than obey, the bible teaches us to honor our father and mother (parents), and it is the first commandment with a promise: that you may live long in the land the Lord your God is giving you. See? more than just learning from their wisdom and mistakes, you are given a promise. Makes sense to obey, right?

Yes it was really stated in the bible and hope my kid will totally absorbed it when they grow old. And really hoping that they would not be eaten by the earthly manners that's now so visible to modern children.

Since they are teaching you, they are like teachers except that they can teach you at any place. Another reason is that they are older than you our, and it is a sign of respect for them when we obey their orders.

Respect is really important and I agree on that. Beside it was written in the bible to honor our mother and father.

Dutiful to parents is the duty of a child. In human logic is rightly, every child should be filial to parents considering the amount of services which has given the parents in their children. If you are a parent who wants your children one day devoted to you, then you should be filial to your parents. Frequently see him, or at least communicate with him frequently, asking his condition and give assistance if they require. Without parents, we are nothing, and we probably would not exist. Filial to parents, does not mean we have to follow all the wishes of parents. If our parents, make mistakes, as a child, we are also obliged to remind parents.
