  • Ann on Ephesians 6:4
    My parents are Christians. They believe in the "respect your parents" way of life. That is fine. However, they don't show any respect towards me, their youngest child. I am an adult and they don't even respect anything I say about my own children. They do as they please and I am to just allow it. My husband and sister in law notice they way they treat me is not very kind. And they mostly behave this way when I am alone with them. My sister in law only knows because she happened to answer my phone when my mother thought she was talking to me. I am to the point that I don't want to go around them anymore, however they are my parents. I am tired of feeling insignificant to them. I have tried to talk to them about this in the past, but it leads to arguments and my mother saying "I am just such a terrible mother." Please give me some advice...What does the Bible REALLY say about toxic parents?? Please help.

    I don't think they're very toxic... Not saying they aren't but.. Maybe they're troubled inside. I pray that you find the answers to this. And I sure do pray that you find resolution to such an issue. In times like any.. Be sure to remain thankful to God as Job did. He will surely reward you.

    Also take a look at Matthew 13:57 - Jesus had the same problem with his family not respecting him.
