We can set some new standards for our families by teaching children not to sit in a parent's place at the table, not to enter the parents' bedroom without permission, to greet and make requests using a person's name or title and to say "yes, please" and "no, thank you" when offered something. We need to remember to practice what we preach. If you require honor, you must also demonstrate it. If you tell your child you're going to do something (positive or negative,) do it. Bend down and look at children at their eye level when talking to them. If we teach our children to honor their elders, they'll have a good reason to want to grow up.

I dont really have any tips or tricks really....giving/having/showing respect is something I've always taught my kids since they were very little and they just know I wont accept or tolerate anything else ya know....Of course there are times when I have to give them a little reminder (one is a teen and they other is almost a teen so they need to be reminded about pretty much everything at the moment LOL) and I also dont demand that they continue being respectful if one loses the right to have respect given to them - that doesnt mean though that they are allowed to be rude, it just means they only have to be civil.... Best advice I can give really is teach them from a young age and accept nothing less than ya know....

Yes we do all in the right way and we never preponed our activities and we are almost good in respecting our elders and others and we veen help the other outside on the road siders who are unable to do things by themselves then why the kids are so even in such cases,anyway thanks for your response.
