I know how it feels to be provoked, cursed and be treated like a step child, it hurts so much and it leads to alot of anger and hatred.

It is true that any word proceeded out of the mouth of God is True and Perfect. Parents in all, must be an example and in like manner of God the Father so that, we their children may live that life to other generations. For what we see from them as a child that we do. Thanks.

let us conduct our self as a parent at all time because we are like a mirror to our children,so that our deeds might not provoke them but bring them into admonition of our lord

Parents ought to be in a prayer attitude to know who to bring up their children It is difficult at times to know how to discipline children. I need to go by the leadership of Holy Spirit to know what to do. The first thing God will not discipline me to provoke me to wrath neither should I provoke my child.

My husband and son stays into with each other. Husband don 't think anybody in the household is right about anything. When you express your feeling a person is lying. Times are to the point of someone getting hurt or dying. I the mother becomes bitches and whores because I know for a fact he wrong. The last one of my children is not as strong as the rest of the family and he tries not to react to things but if you keep pushing him more like provoking him his anger becomes violence and his daddy think in his mind that he is not provoking his child. What do I do?

I believe this instruction is given to fathers ' to help children adhere to the 1st commandment with promise... honor and obey thy father and thy mother so that it will be well with them and they will have long life on this earth. If one provokes their child to wrath and anger the child is in danger of reacting disrespectful towards their elders thus not being able to be led in wisdom nor compassion... A lack of respect or trust for those in authority.

This verse needs to be adhered to , because if a child is brought up in a harsh household, he she will most likely become like the parent and even show that type of behavior with the general public, making life difficult and hard for the person to get along with others.
