Default Children's books/movies about obeying your parents.

Hello, my husband and I are looking for good (preferably Catholic, but okay if not) Christian books/movies that teach the importance of obeying your parents. We would appreciate any other suggestions that might relate to the subject as well. Thank you!

I'll be watching this thread closely. DD1 has been talking back a bit lately and it's getting to me!

I'd like to see suggestions, too.

For general character lessons, we really like VeggieTales. Thomas & Friends and the Busy World of Richard Scarry are great as well, but secular.

Catholic Heritage Curricula makes a lot of really good materials about virtues and good habits. They are technically a homeschooling curriculum provider, but most of their material could easily be used in a non-homeschooling household.

They have a series of books of short devotional/moral stories for kids called Devotional Stories for Little Folks and Devotional Stories for Little Folks, Too.

The stories in them are about a family of kids and things they do to get in trouble and the lessons they learn. There is a lot about 'right away obedience' and learning that your parents have your best interests at heart because they can see the big picture, etc. It covers a LOT of different virtues. The reading level is probably 2nd grade or above, but it makes a great read aloud for the whole family and each story has a bible verse, quote from the catechism, and comprehension questions at the end.

We do a lot of stories like this. Good stories with good morals. THen we also work on ONE habit at a time. You might want to pick obedience first (we did).

There are some good virtue lessons here. They are designed for homeschoolers but you could easily adapt them for non-homeschooling family life.

Just pick ONE thing and approach them like they are the painting and you are the master. You have to start small and be positive.

Krista - I've e-mail my husband the links for Devotional Stories. Thank you for the suggestion! Hopefully we can get a couple more before this thread dies.

Secular, but Barbie's Magic of Pegasus touches on this theme and in the end Barbie's character apologizes to her parents for not listening. There is also a great Prodigal Son story in it too.
