Interpersonal Relationships 

Honoring parents and raising children are not simple tasks.

Interpersonal relationships are complicated and evolving, involving tensions around favoritism. competition for attention, and tensions between the generations.

Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik notes that Jewish law does not attempt to regulate the emotional side of the parent-child relationship. Reverence is interpreted as involving the acknowledgement of parental authority and honor is about requirements connected to ensuring physical comfort. While love can and often does flow from a supportive environment of love honor, and reverence, there seems to be an acknowledgement that emotions cannot be dictated by laws. Likewise, humans show devotion to God through fulfillment of the commandments with the hope that the act of engaging in mitzvot will lead to the awakening of love for God.
