Was Paul’s command to obey parents in Ephesians 6:1 and Colossians 3:20 of the New Testament just for young children or adult children also?

I defer to Username for the theology, and to others for the cultural context. But yes, Greek had a different word for pre-adults (παίς, παιδίον) and for offspring (τέκνον); and Paul uses the latter.
