Requiring Obedience Blesses Our Children

"If we fail to require obedience from our children, we become a stumbling block for them.
Luke 17:2 explains that it would be better for us to drown in the sea with a millstone tied around our necks than to cause a child to stumble.
We are robbing our children of the blessings that God intends for them when we fail to require obedience.
Ephesians 6:1 says, "Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 'Honor your father and your mother' - which is the first commandment with a promise- 'that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth.'"
