We all know that one of the 10 Commandments given to Moses was to “honor your Father and Mother” - but what does this actually mean to a child? How can we encourage honor from kids when they may not have the language to understand? How do we teach and foster honor? Join us for today’s conversation with Dr. Chris Rappazinni for a conversation all about honoring mom and dad, and how to encourage this in our kids.
