Amen.
The world is so complicated today.
Kids know more than I knew at 18 years old.
They need love and encouragement.
I say the onus is on the adult, not on the child.
There's so much abuse that goes on and it would be curbed if it was k own that the immediate community would not accept this behavior.
Acceptance of a behavior makes it legitimate.
Verbal abuse is as bad as physical abuse.
The parent should be told to stop...not the child to accept.

I did say earlier, however, that the child should not talk back unless being falsely accused.
This just makes matters worse.
Good parental Wisdom.

Maybe it would be best to see what God has to say on the subject. There is plenty and here are just a few.

Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with promise: “that it may be well with you and you may live long on the earth.” Ephesians 6:1-4 NKJV

Children, obey your parents in all things, for this is well pleasing to the Lord. Colassians 3:20 NKJV

My son, hear the instruction of your father,
And do not forsake the law of your mother;

Proverbs 1:8 NKJV

The eye that mocks a father
and scorns to obey a mother
will be picked out by the ravens of the valley
and eaten by the vultures.

Proverbs 30:17 NKJV

“And he who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death." Exodus 21:17 NKJV

"Every one of you shall revere his mother and his father, and keep My Sabbaths: I am the Lord your God." Leviticus 19:3 NKJV

“Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you." Exodus 20:12 NKJV

Don't forget that the bible has something to say to parents aswell

Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger by the way you treat them. Rather, bring them up with the discipline and instruction that comes from the Lord. Ephesians 6:4

Ok why are you telling me this?
Because ,their is no limit to age when honoring parents. My dad can ,as I can,be ignorant ,and act as a child. I don't have right to disrespect him nor does jaci have the right to act that way to me.

The older I get the more I see my dad as imperfect but not as a bad I once did.time does that.

Any parent responding to you will agree,when you hold that child for the first time,you are scared,clueless and prayimg.

My.mom nor dad spoke of this to me but looking back I know they had to be like wow we have a son and what are we going to do.jaci is very rebellious, and full of foolishness ,the bible says the rod of correction shall it drive from them.indeed .yet Jaci is young,naïve aND i.must guide her.what failings ,faults I have she can learn and become.that's humbling and scary.I will be the concept of a husband to her.

Also scary.she loves on me daily .saying you are my daddy. A six year old.so yes my parents while not perfect aren't so bad after all.they tried their best to raise Me right.not perfect,I don't have make the same mistakes as they did.

I believe that nowhere is sin more apparent, than regrets we have about how we were raised, and how we have raised our children.

What do you mean?
I mean that parents make mistakes even because their parents made mistakes even because their parents made mistakes and so on and so on all the way back to Adam. We all experience the adverse effects of sin in this manner. I'm defining sin as a separation from God in some degree.

See Brock...
You made good out of an unpleasant situation and worked it to your advantage.
Romans 8:28
It's good to know God. He's always at your side.

The best advice is to treat your parents well.
Don't listen when Mom is upset toward you.
All parents love their children, even if they don't know how to show it.
Forgive them. Especially mom.
Don't be bitter. Concentrate on the positive.

What about publ school?
No good?

The best advice is to treat your parents well.
Easier said than done.

This is true but we cannot control others. We are instructed to control ourselves.

I anticipated that you would reply with this so I prepared some other directions from Scripture. I believe these instructions apply to how we treat all people including our parents. There are many more than what I posted here.

"Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth." Matthew 5:5 NKJV

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called sons of God." Matthew 5:9 NKJV

“I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also." Matthew 5:38-39 NKJV

"I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you," Matthew 5:44 NKJV

"You shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect." Matthew 5:48 NKJV

"If you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." Matthew 6:14-15 NKJV

"Whatever you want men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Law and the Prophets." Matthew 7:12 NKJV

“Be angry, and do not sin.” Ephesians 4:26 NKJV

"Let no corrupt word proceed out of your mouth, but what is good for necessary edification." Ephesians 4:29 NKJV

"Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you." Ephesians 4:32 NKJV

"Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another." Romans 12:10 NKJV
"Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor." Romans 12:10 ESV

"Do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written, 'Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,' says the Lord." Romans 12:19 NKJV

"Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." Romans 12:21 NKJV

"This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you." John 15:12 NKJV

Hi Brock, being a teenager, You are probably under a lot of peer pressure. Your friends may be allowed to do things that your parents disagree with (I'm just guessing here) and that brings a conflict between running with your friends and obeying your parents. If so, this is something we have all had to go through. But some of those who have blatantly rebelled against their parents, I have ministered to on DEATH ROW in prison. Something to think about. It is better to look at a road map to see where and how to reach home, than to blindly take off, using your own sense of direction, where you wind up being hopelessly lost, and then look at a road map after the fact. The problem with that is, Looking at the map afterwards, you have no starting point, for you do not know where you are at on the map to plot a course back home (that is being lost). You do not know where you are going in life, and you do not know where you are at....you are lost. And then at the last days of your life, you will wonder what you have accomplished with your time here? Think it over before you choose a path.

I actually don't have any friends in real life but I do appreciate the advice.
