God punishing someone in hell for not obeying him and parents locking their child in an oven for not obeying them.. so what's the difference?

The difference is that God redeems us from hell alive and conscious and unharmed. Hell is never forever. It only exists until the resurrections and final judgment. Rev. 20:12-14.
Besides, the "flames" of hell are only symbolic.

It is certainly not love now is it!

The difference is that God doesn't want to put you in the oven, is sending people your way to tell you how to avoid going in the oven, and will be grieved when you ignore him unto death and end up in the oven.

The parents are not God...you couldn't figure that out for yourself?

Hell in both testaments is the grave. You refer to the lake of fire as represented in Revelation.
Rev 20:15 And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.
Parents aren't God.
Eze 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

The dark realm is for the wicked.
Is it not wicked to spit on the earth when the earth is your only home?
Is it not wicked to let others to suffer while one indulges in endless pleasures?
Is it not wicked to bomb an entire people of children and families?
Is it not wicked to slaughter animals so carelessly and where they feel pain, than to appreciate what is given?
Is it not wicked to put one in an oven as you say?
The wicked are told they are given shame.
but one can not speak for God. It is told the Lord is most merciful and often forgiving.
The prophets came to tell the people to repent, which is to "consider and regret".
Who on earth can not discern between what is right and wrong?
Should one come up and slap you for no reason?
So then why would you slap someone!
Has it not been announced that recyclables are shipped to other countries where they are dumped in the ocean?
and still the people consume plastic never ending, knowing well that it does not deteriorate!
Is it right that one should be caught in the midst of a wicked war?
Then why does war involve citizens?
Why is the truth not published!
Why do the people not demand the truth!

God allowing someone to reject Him and freely choose an eternity without Him is similar to someone rejecting their parents, doing their own thing, and suffering the consequences.
