Bake some crazy cookies, play Simon Says or go on an “O” hunt. Or check out more fun ways to learn to obey.

Work through your choice of obedience-focused activities over a week or more to help your kids:

  • be quick to obey their parents
  • deepen their desire to obey God
  • adopt a positive attitude toward authority figures.

This lesson also helps curb defiance, an argumentative attitude and a tendency to ignore instructions.
