I don't think it is difficult teaching kids about respect. Parents are their kids' first teacher. Our kids observe and copy us without us even realizing it at times. The best and most important thing we can do is to model respect for them. We show them and our partners respect. We demand respect in return.

Respect is not just about using manners and being polite. It's acknowledging differing opinions. It's listening to others with our complete attention. It's being able to politely disagree. It's being tolerant of other people's beliefs and decisions.

There are plenty of books about teaching respect but in my opinion, life experiences are the biggest teacher of all.
