respect breeds respect…

When parents are respectful of their child’s feelings and opinions, it is possible for the the child to take the parents’ wishes into account. Being respectful of children not only models respect, but it also let’s the child know that the parents care about the child and take the child’s point of view into account. Individuals are more likely to listen to people who are respectful of them. Respect breeds respect.
