Conscious Parenting

Respecting the parents

Q: How can children be taught to respect the parents?

“With very few exceptions, parents are not aware of the disastrous influence that their own defects, impulses, weaknesses and lack of self-control have on their children. If you wish to be respected by a child, have respect for yourself and be worthy of respect at every moment. Never be authoritarian, despotic, impatient or ill-tempered.” (CWM, Vol. 12, p. 10)
