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.

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. :-)

I sometimes cannot help feeling sad when I see them do this.



You can give love, but you can't wait for the same...

Children have always and everywhere disrespected their parents. The point is that now, a great ammount of children don't care about showing their disrespect.

I wish those children would soon feel sad as you feel about their behaviour, and so they could think about changing their behaviour.
You can help me with my English by telling me my mistakes in a private message. Thanks :)

I don't think a good child should always obey their parents. We have our own opinions and our parents aren't always right. I don't like the way of educating children that parents' opinions have to be followed by their children. This may prevent children from developing their creation. And in such families, children are usually dependent. They neither have their own words nor do anything themselves. Being educated by parents is great but in some cases, children can naturally grow up well, I believe so. :wink:

well, yes, I must agree, too much respect is really sometimes as bad as not respect at all. The golden middle way is in between. I don't think we must consider older people always to be right, even if they are not. Everybody just has to have his own values, and basically they come from family. Children and teenagers are people, and adults make great mistakes just wanting them to be respectful. There must be a reason to have respect. Talk, discuss, explain what you think, tell them what you want and , most important, tell them why you want it. Sometimes parents think it is enough just to give orders and that's it. Why not explain? Why not discuss possible consequences, if it is not done the right way? And if teenagers don't understand you, maybe it's not because they are bad, but just because you didn't find the right words? Try again. There is no one recipy for everybody. So , if you have a problem, you must try as much as needed to find the way to your teenager's ears and heart. There is such a way, always.
And if you don't , there are others, who always will- the other teenagers, the internet, the movies... without your help your teenager can get the wrong message.
