"1 Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. 2 'Honor your father and mother' --which is the first commandment with a promise-- 3 'that it may go well with you and that you may enjoy long life on the earth'."
This is the only commandment for children in the Bible. Everytime I am disciplining my young children, I reference God's only command for children...to obey your parents. It's one more opportunity to talk about God and His Word, and how to discuss "Modeling the Way."
