For that reason a proper example should be set in the home. The parents should not argue in front of the child or allow the child to talk back. By doing so they limit the chance of having a disrespectful teen that yells and argues with the parent in the future.

How parents respond to the child’s needs is very important. A parent needs to respond to the child’s emotional, physical and mental needs.
