Respecting one’s parents
This question has not been answered directly, however, we can get some guidance from the following answer, taken from the Arabic version of Ajwiba Fiqhiyya vol 1 (Various jurisprudential answers)
In conclusion: given that children should always be respectful to their parents and even please them, the Ansar have an opportunity to continue guiding their children, so they should avail themselves of this opportunity wherever possible.

Q39: what is the ruling if my father does not wish to speak to me and he is angry with me, though I do not know if he wants to completely disassociate from me (perhaps) because he knows I am from the Shia religion and he is from the Sunni religion?
Answer: be obedient to your father and try to please him as long as he does not damage your religion. God Most High said: (If they try to force you to ascribe partners to Me from that concerning which you have no knowledge then do not obey them, yet deal with them in a good way, in this life, and follow the path of he who turns to Me – then to Me is your return and I will inform you of what you used to do) Luqman: 15

س39/ ما الحكم إن كان أبي لا يريد الكلام معي وهو غاضب مني، ولا أعلم إن كان يريد التبرؤ مني؛ لأنه علم أنني من المذهب الشيعي وهو من أهل السنة ؟
ج/ بر والدك، وحاول أن ترضيه فيما لا يضر بدينك، قال تعالى: ﴿وَإِن جَاهَدَاكَ عَلى أَن تُشْرِكَ بِي مَا لَيْسَ لَكَ بِهِ عِلْمٌ فَلَا تُطِعْهُمَا وَصَاحِبْهُمَا فِي الدُّنْيَا مَعْرُوفاً وَاتَّبِعْ سَبِيلَ مَنْ أَنَابَ إِلَيَّ ثُمَّ إِلَيَّ مَرْجِعُكُمْ فَأُنَبِّئُكُم بِمَا كُنتُمْ تَعْمَلُونَ﴾ لقمان: 15.
