Either way it is
believed by some that a curse will take effect if it said by a parent.
For example if a parent curses a child to never be successful in their life,
if the child never amounts to nothing it will be attributed to the curse.
The most dangerous curse is said to not be from a father but
rather from a mother. The mother is said to have a special bond with
the child as the child is carried in the mother's womb for many months.
If the mother
curses the child it is believed that the child must have been extremely
disrespectful, and will be punished.
In fact, in no circumstance is disrespect towards a parent
acceptable. It is believed that we
can pay for disrespect in this life as much as in the next. God is
said to be all seeing rewarding those who are righteous and punishing those
who are not. In the case of disrespect towards a parent the punishment
is said to come sooner, and then later as well!
Take a look at a Greek Folk Tale which warns
avoid the curse of a mother: The
Good Bee. (A tale about how a mother's curse should be feared, and
her praise most wanted.)
