  1. I agree with you that respect is essential. If you want your kids respect, you must first give them respect. I think many of the older generation think that kids should give respect without any possibility of them getting it in turn. after all they are just kids. but that's just not the right way to deal with kids. respect them and you will receive more trust and confidence from them
