Some people doesn't treat their parents fairly. If your parents made sure you had food on the table, roof over your head and met your needs growing up, they deserve respect. Would you be the person you are today if you didn't have the raising you have? Treat all people the way you want to be treated.

If parents are good to you then, yeah, be good to them but just because they put food on the table doesn't mean they are good parents. We see this a lot today; people buying their kids phones and things just so they don't have to deal with them. If the parents disrespect the children then the children shouldn't respect them.

How old are you? The way you talk your less than thirty. If you parents didn't beat you for nothing, sexually abuse you then you respect them. Parents in my day did not spare the rod and spoil the child. They taught you the sense that was needed to take care of their family. They also taught the children to respect their elders. Parents shouldn't have to earn respect from their children.

Yes, I am under thirty. However, just because I'm younger than you doesn't mean I'm less wise. I do respect my elders but sometimes, they shouldn't have respect. Also in your day they didn't consider it beating to slap your kid or worse but today we do. If a parent uses drugs and neglects their kids, but still manages to put food on the table, should be respected? A lot of kids don't respect their parents when they should (even I'll admit that) but some parents don't deserve respect from children.

I understand how hard it would be to respect your parents if they are doing those things you said...My advice (from personal experience) is for you to model the respect that you would like for them to show you...back to them. Don't back talk or do what they are doing. Show them that you are a bigger person than that, and learn to live your life in a way that will earn respect from everyone that you come in to contact with. As for your parents, I pray they can get their lives on the right track before much worse things happen to them....although as a parent, I can't think of much worse than to lose the respect of my own children. God Bless you, live a respectful life yourself, get an education and a career, and you will have a wonderful future.

I have to agree! Parents should not just expect respect, not these days anyway! Lots of parents now are either barely in their children's lives or they are to much in it, to the point where it's overly controlling. If you want your child's respect, you should respect them and show them trust!

My father in-law was tricked into signing his house over to his son nine years ago. He had him do this just a few days before open heart surgery. This gave the house to the only biological child and left my father in-law with a life estate in the property.A life estate means that as long as the life estate holder lives he has a right to live there just as he has always done for the past forty years. Guess what? While father in- law was in the hospital fighting for his life(he has only 30% of his lungs left)with pneumonia, his son had the locks changed on his house.The father in law is 78 years old and he wanted to spend what he thought could be his last Christmas in his own home in Francisco In. When we sent a friend to the house to get it ready for his arrival back home we found the locks had been changed. How's that for a way to treat your dad?All I know is the bio son & his half sister that always backs her little brother had better be checking out nursing homes and choose one for themselves because they have set a bad example to their children as far as how you should treat your parents.

To "help"- I'm so sorry that happened to you. Obviously there could be no trust respect from you for your father who sexually abused you. I pray you haven't kept this inside for 40 years, and please do NOT blame yourself for this horrible violation committed by your father. It was his fault completely. If you haven't had counselling to help work through this I pray you will call the Cumberland River Comprehensive Care center and ask to talk to a counselor who deals with rape victims. They can help you. Don't feel guilty that you have no respect for your father-he truly is not deserving of your respect. But for your sake, working through it will help you be a happier person today. It will also help you be able to "honor" your parent if he is still alive, but that doesn't mean having to have a close relationship with him. Sometimes forgiveness is all that can bring some sort of peace to you...
