Teaching My Children
This is so true! Many people can learn from this. Want your kids to be respectful? Treat them with respect, but more importantly, as parents, treat EACH OTHER and others with respect. Demanding parents produce demanding kids. Dramatic parents product dramatic kids. Want your kids to be different and maybe have a better life than yours? Then break the cycle.
