Message length 300 characters recommended

For children that are disrespectful you sometimes have to take a different approach than you normally would.

In trying to teach them to be respectful you need to be a role model first and foremost. Make sure you treat people respectfully so they can see that behavior modeled.

Secondly, never stoop to their level. Remain calm and concise without being a push over. If you bring yourself down to their level and engage in the disrespectful behavior in retaliation they have won. That's exactly what they want from you.

Depending on the exact type of behavior, you may need to step back and see if you are spoiling them with too much stuff and no expectations. Spoiled children don't appreciate things and disrespectful behavior goes hand in hand with that.

You know, I don't think any mother aims to be a single mom. I didn't wish for that, but it happened.
