Taking into consideration what the Bible says regarding our roles as parents, then taking into consideration the KNOWN abuse which occurs within the church (everything from emotional/psychological/sexual/physical).... Do you believe that it is prudent to teach a child that they are subservient until they become adults themselves?
At what point, should they be considered their own entity and of value?
Do you not believe that teaching a child that he/she is subservient to all adults puts them in a position to be easily victimized?

I think they should be showed respect to learn respect (understand that it does not mean doing what they want) In my opinion in order for a person to learn respect they need to KNOW it. I have seen both sides to this growing up. My mom showed us respect and did not force us to do anything unless it was necessary, including picking our religion. My mothers sister forced it upon her children, they were to be subservient, they had no choices. Most of them are in not good places now. I also saw what happened with several friends in school. As soon as they got away from their parents they went wild, promiscuous, drugs etc. One of them is now dead to an over dose. I think giving them healthy boundaries is best all the way around. Read the book "How to raise emotionally healthy children" it is a really good book.
