As we continue to work with our son on showing “respect” to his teacher, I realize just how challenging this is. Here is a link for a video that gives a great “recipe for teaching respect”. I love how immediate the suggestions can be implemented in our home and hopefully yours too. It does require some humility on our part as parents to put these suggestions into place. I agree with the teacher’s recipe in the video: In order to get respect from the youth of our villages, we must first teach it. I believe they will learn what respect looks like when we show them through our actions.
Please feel free to share any strategies that you have found helpful to grow respectful children and youth. Elder voices especially welcomed!
