The wise children listen to their parents (Prov 1:8-1:10)

“Hear!

My child!

Your father’s instruction!

Do not reject your mother’s teaching!

They are a fair garland for your head.

They are pendants for your neck.”

The first recommendation about wisdom is that children should listen to their parents. Their father and mother will instruct them and teach them. They should not despise parental instruction. In fact, they should wear their parents’ teaching on their head like a Roman garland or pendant on their necks. They should be proud of their parents.
