Don't Take Everything Personally or Overreact

Using disrespectful responses to teach respect rarely works. Rude adults can escalate matters just as well as rude kids can.

Don't Take Everythong Personally and Overreact

Don't Bad-Mouth Other People

Remember, they're watching you, even if they don't seem like they care what you do. If you value respect, model respectful behavior.

Don't Take Your Child's Side

Your child will most likely encounter plenty of people in their life that they might disagree with. Let your child know that regardless of how they feel, they still need to find a way to act appropriately.

Don't Take Your Child's Side

Don't Forget to Praise Their Good Behavior

Kids respond well to praise. Not only does it feel good to be praised, but it also gives your child important feedback: acknowledging good behavior reinforces those skills.

Don't Forget to Praise Their Good Behavior

Don't Demand Respect

You can't demand respect, but you can remind them to act respectfully, no matter how they feel about the situation.
