Children, obey your parents in all things, for this pleases the Lord. Fathers, don’t provoke your children, so that they won’t be discouraged.
Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right. “Honor your father and mother,” which is the first commandment with a promise: “that it may be well with you, and you may live long on the earth.”
Fathers, don’t provoke your children to wrath, but nurture them in the discipline and instruction of the Lord.

Did you never read, ‘Out of the mouth of babes and nursing babies you have perfected praise?’”
Whoever curses his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in blackness of darkness.
Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not depart from it.
Don’t remember the sins of my youth, nor my transgressions. Remember me according to your loving kindness, for your goodness’ sake, Yahweh.

Josiah was eight years old when he began to reign; and he reigned thirty-one years in Jerusalem. He did that which was right in Yahweh’s eyes, and walked in the ways of David his father, and didn’t turn aside to the right hand or to the left. For in the eighth year of his reign, while he was yet young, he began to seek after the God of David his father; and in the twelfth year he began to purge Judah and Jerusalem from the high places, and the Asherah poles, and the engraved images, and the molten images.
2 Timothy 2:22.
