We often forget that children aren’t born with a built-in sense of respect for others. Our children need to be taught to be respectful. And it is the responsibility of we parent to teach our children respect. How can you do this?
1. Identify their reason for being disrespectful
When genuinely being disrespected, we should pay attention to the circumstance instead of asking them why they are being disrespectful.
2. Speak politely to your child.
And remember that however you speak to your child is the way he or she will speak to you and everybody else.
3. Teach by example
Demonstrate respect and kindness with your association with the other adults at home knowing fully well your kids are watching.
4. Don’t stoop to their level.
Kids will be kids. They’ll whine, they’ll have temper tantrums, they’ll pout. If you’re acting that way too, they’ll likely have little respect for you. Keep your cool.
