Teens will respect if the parent teaches them to respect. If the parent lives a ghetto lifestyle, then the teen will embrace that same ghetto lifestyle. Certain shows also have a lot to do with the way a teen interprets life. If a teen spends his/her entire time watching dumbass shows like "Teen Mom," "Jersey Shore," "Mtv," or any other type of moronic show, then there's a good chance that the teen will end up a ghetto loser....that is IF the child is taught the difference between what's fake and what's reality.

Teens need to respect themselves first, before they can respect others. As far as parenting and raising children goes: The only thing you can get out of a trash can is more trash. The only way the child of a "trash can" can make it is if they are very tough and strong minded. If they are not, then they will most likely end up trash like their parents. WAKE UP HEBBRONVILLE! TIME TO THROW OUT THE TRASH!

It's too bad that there is obviously no birth control for trash cans... or maybe there is :)

Very well said "dumpster". I agree with you 100%. WE as the adult, should be the first to extend respect by making and enforcing reasonable rules fairly. Don't yell, manipulate, name-call, attack his character, get physical, "Bible-thump" or threaten. Be as clear as you can about what you take exception to and don't "micro-manage" your adolescent. Also, realize that you can't demand respect. You may need to deal with the disappointment, hurt and/or embarrassment resulting from a disrespectful child/teen. Sort out your own emotions with your spouse, a friend, a minister or a counselor. Face it, you may not be "liked" at times, even if you do everything correctly or wisely. Do what is right, even if it brings some distress to the immediate relationship. Remember, you're making a long-term investment.

Well I don't agree. At least not 100% first you need an education and respect will follow. Just saying

Good, but it would be much more helpful to know more about what parents can do to change an unwanted behaviour, not that is just not their fault....if parents are the solution.....then what are they to do? More on this is definitely needed. Thanks

Only 50% is on the parent the other 50% is on the child.as a parent u can only do so much. But what and how you do it is what counts. A parent shouldn't take all the blame when the child screws up nor take all the glory when they succeeded .. Js

As far as what a parent can do it depends on what u want from the child... love and respect. Well love and respect them. Morals are learned by example. JS
