S1E17 Understanding Obedience and Cooperation for Christian Parents

As an adult would you want to be in a controlling or forceful relationship? How do you feel when you are told what to do? Think about being volunteered for a position that you didn’t really want to take. You would likely feel the urge to push back, or feel angry. This is how our kids feel about being told what to do all day long.

I know that there is a lot of debate around obedience, especially when the bible does repeatedly does mention obedience. But there is a difference between forced obedience and willing cooperation / choosing to obey. The word obey means to comply with a command or request. So doing the action that was requested is obedience, but we should also be concerned with the heart or attitude behind it.
