When children don’t listen to their parents when they are told to do something they never learn to treat their parents with respect. 50 years ago children that didn’t treat their parents with respect got “licked” and now days children don’t even care if they don’t show their parents respect and the parents don’t really do anything about it.
Children need to listen to their parents when they are told to do something and show their parents respect by doing it the first time they ask. When children learn to respect their parents at a young age they also learn to respect not only their parents but adults in general. When children learn respect in their home it goes with them everywhere like school and listening to teachers and with their friends and family.
Some people say that when children don’t listen to their parents they are just showing that they are independent. This is not true when children don’t listen to their parents when asked to do something they are showing their parents that they don’t matter to them. When children show respect towards their parents they are showing them that they care and that they want them in their lives.
In all children need to show their parents respect and it’s as simple as just doing what their parents ask them to do the first time. When children show respect towards their parents they also learn to show other adults respect too, and this is a very big deal in today’s society.
