It’s frustrating, isn’t it?
You try hard as a parent. You do so much for your children, but they’re frequently not respectful toward you.
Sometimes they ignore what you say, or they talk back to you. They even ask you to stop nagging.
I’ve spoken to and worked with close to 25,000 children and teenagers so far, so I know what will get them to respect you as a parent.
When I say “respect”, I’m referring to a sense of admiration and honour that your children have toward you.
I’m not referring to your children feeling afraid of you.
In other words, if you want to get your children to respect you, you’ll need to earn it.
Here are 5 tips that will help you to do just that . . .
1. Respect your children
Youngsters gain from watching you, and they're probably going to duplicate your conduct. At the point when you show fundamental regard toward your youngsters, they'll exhibit regard toward you.
I'm not saying that you should allow your youngsters to abuse you. However, I am saying that you shouldn't put down or disgrace them, nor should you condemn them cruelly.
2. Don’t overreact
Try not to overreact to your children’s less-than-ideal behaviour, even when you’re feeling stressed.
When you stay calm and respond appropriately, they’re more likely to respond in kind too.
3. Share your values and beliefs with your children
You can’t force your children to adopt your beliefs. But when your children understand why you believe what you believe, they’ll recognise that you’re a person of principles.
4. Be reasonable (especially when your children are being unreasonable)
In some cases it's baffling being a parent, however attempt to remain quiet. Recall that the manner in which you act when you're irate is the manner in which they're probably going to carry on when they're upset as well.
Be the greater individual, and don't depend on ridiculing or shameful attacks – regardless of whether you have a feeling that your youngsters merit it.
5. Listen to your children
art of being respectful is listening to the other person.
When you listen to your children, you’ll find they’re more likely to listen to you.
This is especially so if you use active listening techniques, as described here.
