Honor Thy Parents- Back Talk Game






If you love me you will keep my commandments. John 14:15

One of the ways you show that you love God is to obey your parents and honor them with respect.

What is the fourth commandment? Honor thy father and thy mother. (Catholic)

Back Talk: The object of this game is for the children to honor their parent’s requests in the proper way. Print out the three sets of cards. One set is what a parent would say to their child (these cards are in red). Another set is a disrespectful response from a child to the parent. Another set of cards is what the child should say to their parent. Shuffle the cards and deal them completely out. Have the players put their cards face up in from of them so that others can see and read their cards and help them if necessary. By taking turns, have one player start with what a parent would say and read it out loud. After they have read the card, they place it in the middle of the table face up. The rest of the players then check their cards to see if they have one that says what a disrespectful child would say to their parent in response in this situation. If they have the card, they read it out loud and place it face up next to the first card. Then the players look at their cards to see if they have what a child should say to their parent. If they have the card, they read it out loud and place it face up next to the second card. Players can also play in teams so they can help each other answer the questions.

Although I'm now an orphan, I will be honoring my mom on Thanksgiving by making sure a prayer is said before digging in. I'm still like a little kid...always trying to please mom. :)

Excellent idea! I am using it today in our Summer BIble Club - just our kids and their friends. It should be awesome!

Hello, I wonder what age group you found to enjoy this game. I wonder if it would be too complex for second graders. I am planning a first reconciliation retreat and need some formational games.

Andrew- It's hard to say. Are they good readers?
