Teaching Children Respect

Teaching children respect: don't forget you are the parent and he is the child. As we teach our children they act when they are adults, and respect for a parent or for anyone else in their life is very important.

Is your child respecting you? If not, you certainly need to have respect: don't forget you are the parent and he is the child. As we teach our children they act when they are adults, and respect for a parent or for anyone else in their

life is very important, it makes all the difference in the adults they become. Remember as we teach we shape their behavior and we need to realize this so very much.

You might ask yourself, how do I teach respect? It is better to teach this from the age they begin understanding than to wait until they are teenagers as it will be very hard if not impossible to teach then, so start early. Did you realize that children follow your actions, if you

show respect for your spouse, for your friends,

etc. then they will follow your example.

If you are constantly yelling at your spouse or even your child, or belitting either, calling names, you are teach disrespect to the child, please do remember that fact, it is very important.

See that your children even treat each other with respect at home, no name calling, no yelling, then when they leave the home they will only know to respect others and to also want respect in return. Now children need to learn how to treat others and that is by the example you set in the home. As you go through each day, tell your child

when he isn't being respectful: 'now you are not

acting as you should to a certain person and explain the correct way to act toward that person.'



When you are perhaps out in public, maybe in line at the grocery, treat others with respect and he will see how this is accomplished: do not be rude to the cashier as she checks your groceries. If she does make an error, correct it

with a pleasant manner, you can do this, even without your child with you, kindness goes so very far in our lives. Now if your child is speaking to someone out in public in a manner that you do not approve of, please take your child aside and tell him the correct way to handle himself: do not belittle your child in front of others, this is the worse possible way to handle this situtation. Have a quiet place to talk, even at the mall, you can sit on a bench

and quietly talk and tell him what you expect of him: you can't make a point while loud noise or loud music is happening as there are too many distractions.

When you teach respect and caring for the feelings of others, you are just making a commitment to being a good parent and really it doesn't take much of your time and once the child learns respect think of the time that will be

quality time spent with your child and the feeling of being so very proud that you have been a good parent. You will reap the rewards of being a good parent for the rest of your life, remember this.

Now enjoy being a parent and have the respect of your child: it's really not hard to accomplish, but you need to start today, not put it off until tomorrow.
