A portion from the Torah.  To be taken seriously for this are God’s words.
1.              Focus on Deuteronomy 27:24
Cursed is the one who attacks his neighbour secretly
We are forbidden to speak secretly against someone behind his back. If we have a problem, go speak to that person and speak with that person gently.
2.            Focus on Deuteronomy  27: 16
Cursed is the one who treats his father or his mother with contempt
The Lord takes honouring our parents very seriously. This command is constantly repeated.

A righteous man is a man that has learned to bridle his tongue. If one can learn to control the tongue, controlling the other parts of man is easy. The tongue is difficult to control as we are governed by our emotions. Our speech reflects of what is inside of us. What we say to each other and what we say to our parents reflect that which is deep in us. Even if we say, we were just joking or we didn’t mean it, that which was uttered reveals the root of our emotions. Gossiping is also indicative of our heart. Deal with the problem.
Look up James 3:2-7
Matthew 15: 18-19
Remember our parents are God given. They are to guide us while we are here on earth.
