Respect is big issue

Where does respect come from?
If you are like most people, it comes from home. Respect is taught and fostered amongst the responsible people in your household. When respect is not taught in the household it turns into a complete disaster.
A small percentage of people in the world believe that they are not responsible for teaching respect anymore. The truth is that with the older generation getting older and older, we must take it upon ourselves to use this as the opportunity to teach respect.

The Right Way
There is a right way and a wrong way to teach respect. The right way is to teach it by modeling what respect looks like. When you see a younger person walking down the street and they are not being respectful., then it is your job to correct them. You may save them from a life of eternal lockdown or death.
To model respect, means to show them what it looks like and sounds like. This is just a basic principal of good teaching, but it is something that can be implemented universally. I will always remember when my mom and dad would teach me how to study as a child. Studying began at school, but my parents modeled it for me at home. I would sit at the kitchen table, and read with my parents. They read the newspaper and I had to read the school books. My mom was taking some classes and she made me study simultaneously. The most important part of the lesson was to show that studying was possible and how it was done.

The wrong way
Corporal punishment is never the answer. We can never assume that everyone understands everything. Not all children understand what respect is or how it is done. It truly takes a village to raise a child.

Ask for help
If you need assistance on how to teach this concept. Feel free to go to primeurbanway.webs.com. Go to the webstore and ask the professor. It is confidential.

Respect goes a long way. You can even save a life. Respect can save another child from spending 25 years to life in prison.
