We hear a lot about respect, and we hear a lot about how kids need to be made to respect their parents. Respect is important, it's true. How you get there, though...well...there are things to know about encouraging respect.
We all want to feel respected. And, when I say "all," I'm referring to children, too. When we feel respected we do better, and we feel more connected to the person who is respecting us. Treating children with due respect is another excellent "lubricant" in the parenting tool kit. Make liberal use of it, and you will enjoy your time with your kids for a lifetime!
