One of the First and most Basic Lessons for your child to learn
is: to respect you as parents. This relationship with parents
forms the basis of his/her future relationships with teachers,
employers, law enforcement officers and others. It says that "I
am your parent and expect you to obey me and to what I say."
This does not mean an unloving, authoritarian approach nor does
it mean anarchy and an absence of firm leadership. It involves
love with firm guidance and communication. Teaching respect is
also a way of showing your love, because it says to your child
"Because I love you, I must teach you what is the right way
to act". You must be worthy of this respect and thus through
mutual respect, children will learn to accept your values. Children
who can disrespect and show contempt for parents will probably
reject the parent's values and philosophy also.
