Mitzvah #128 - Fearing parents

One should fear one's parents. This includes:
  • Not standing or sitting on their designated places
  • Not contradicting them
  • Not addressing them by name
A parent may give permission to their child to do any of the above, if they so wish.

Applies to everybody, everywhere, always

Verse: "A person should fear his mother and father" (Vayikra 19:3)
