We would all agree that today we live in a consumerist society, and, sadly, when it comes to children and parents this can be the case as well. Parents are the givers of parental services and children are consumers. When we act as a consumer-only, we don’t sense the right to GIVE anything, and in the case of this month’s parenting class, that often includes RESPECT.
We want our children to be respectful towards us, towards their siblings, their friends, their teachers. Actually we expect them to be respectful towards EVERYONE. But how do we move from wanting a respectful child to actually having one? Check out this month’s video to begin the conversation on instilling respect.
We’ll be in touch later this month with more practical tools on HOW TO instill respect in your child.
