    But then again, my kids are 9 and 5...so this isn't too much a problem for me right now.

    My children are all married with families of their own.

    I am raising one of my grandsons and he is very obedient.

    We have two teenagers, so this is a pertinent poll. It is difficult to answer since there insn't an answer that really fits.

    I'm pretty sure that they don't obey to the last punctuation mark (OK, I'm really sure they don't). However, they do share our faith, our values and our principles.

    Of course, we want (and expect) our kids to be obedient. But it is far more important for them to know & follow Jesus, to have Christian values and to have a Christian world view.

    We have four boys in our home, although only one is our son. I have two younger brothers, 17 and 16 who have lived with me since they were 9 and 10 and my wife's brother who is also 16 has been with us for two years. They're remarkably obedient, considering the fact that we're their legal guardians, not their parents. We've been waiting for the other shoe to drop for quite some time, but so far, so good.
