I think the problem might be a simple matter of inversion.

A: You always obey your parents!

B: (Of course / So must I / So do I), because they are my parents.

More natural English would be to change the position of the pronoun (I):

"So I must, because they are my parents"

"So I do, because they are my parents."

Or even, more naturally and less formally::

"I must do so, because they are my parents"

"I do so because they are my parents"

That's all, I think. ("Of course" is fine, but gives less detail)
