I don't teach my son to "respect elders". I teach him to respect people who respect him. I don't care how old you are. If you disrespect him why should he respect you? Just because you're older doesn't mean you can bully him.
By having a calm conversation, parents are teaching their children self-control. Expressing anxiety is contagious—and so is calm. Remaining calm sets an example for your children and this skill will have a positive effect on all of their future relationships. Even as an adult, do you like it when someone yells at you? The reality is yelling doesn't make anyone hear you any better. In fact, it’s intimidating, threatening and can cause you to tune them out. #quote
