The bible says in Proverbs 20:11, “Even a child is known by his doings, whether his work is pure, and whether it is right.” His actions are a reflection of the parents who have trained him.
What is Respect? It’s both a noun and a verb; “respect” can also be made into an adverb and an adjective. Respect is a very Big Deal!
For most of us, respect means thinking of someone else, considering his needs, desires, and position. In some cases, it is an acknowledgment of “who’s the boss!”
From the perspective of the child, regardless of their age, they can begin to understand that to behave respectfully; they must act in a specific, acceptable way at certain places and in certain times. Sometimes it is in the way that they talk to someone, the way that they follow the rules and the way to take care of things. For example, she must respect her books by not tearing the pages and not walking on them.
Your child’s ability to show respect and politeness to others will reveal much about you as parents. Your commitment to teaching them respect is critical. Disrespect is not something that they will outgrow. They need you to not walk away, but rather to train and enforce respect into their character.
