Roles of the Children

Gospel Principles page 216

“ Children share with their parents the responsibilities of building a happy home. they should obey the commandments and cooperate with other family members. The Lord is not pleased when children quarrel ( see mosiah 4:14)

The Lord has commanded children to honor their parents. he said, “honour thy father and thy mother ; that thy days may be long upon the land” (Exodus 20:12). To honor parents means to love and respect them. It also means to obey them. The scriptures tell children to “obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right” ( Ephesians 6:1).

President Spencer W. Kimball said that children should learn to work and to share responsibilities in the home and yard. they should be given assignments to keep the house neat and clean. “
