Rude or Respectful?



It's important to teach our children respect and it must be taught with great consistency.

There is nothing that embarrasses me more than if one of my kids acts rude or disrespectful.    

Respect is really important in our family. One thing my husband and I want our children to see is that their actions are not just a reflection on them but our whole family as well.  We've found that respect is something that must be taught with great consistency. When asked a question we expect them to respond with real words not grunts or groans under their breath. We've also shown them how to answer the phone politely and give a nice firm handshake when being introduced to others. 

Now, trust me this is a process and our kids are not perfect so we've also clearly explained the consequences of disobedience. The consequences are memorable enough that next time respect seems like a more appealing choice.
