Yes... :mrgreen: :? :mrgreen: Maybe my grammatical structure is false.

I did mean :

Many people think that being free means having no limit.
And they give this idea to others people (family for example).
And advertisement reinforce this idea.
And this idea is FALSE.

But you cannot force someone to good or bad things. There comes the trust. [trusting is taking risk]

While is was reading these posts I realised how lucky I am. My children aren't perfect; by any stretch of the imagination; but they have always been respectful.

Definately they have been taught this, because it starts with respecting yourself and your property.

At an early age you should have you children look after their space and their belongings. I know it sounds strange, but these are the first lessons of respect for young children.

Also when they start speaking you need to pull them into line (the word here is consistently). Not just sometimes; everytime they are out of line, remind them of the right way.

Another thing that helps with young children is to have their grandparents, aunts, uncles etc involved in their lives.

Just my opinion, but I know that my mother has so much respect from her (now) adult grandchildren, they think the world of her because she has always shown them the way.

8) 8) :D :D

Yup, an extended family is the way.

All depends on your definition of freedom :roll: There is several definitions of freedom and this "idea" is not fundamentally false...

BYE :)

If freedom is having no limit, it is an utopia.

i have much respect to my parents and i hope one day my own children will feel the same for me too. I have much respect for other people too, even those I don't know. it's just what I've been taught ever since I can remember. :-)
