If children have respect for their parents, it keeps them from doing very big mistakes which they could then not confess to their parents. Due to their respect they stop before.
Only those who are not respectable can be disrespectful towards others because they don’t know the value of respect themselves.
The coming generation will not forgive and forget violence in their childhood. If you hit your children, they will not keep a loving relationship with you, so don’t even start it!
Teach your children respect for others and themselves. Otherwise as adults they will start having psychic problems, don’t love themselves and don’t respect their body and feelings. Sometimes they even start hurting themselves. And there is nobody to stop them and set them limits. If they are not nice to you, why would they be nice to themselves?
When you feel that a person is not respectful towards you, remember that he probably doesn’t even feel any respect for himself, so it is difficult to feel it for you.
