Are things gettingâ€™ a little tense in your home?Â Are the kids throwing verbal barbs at each other?Â Are they crossing the lineâ€¦ provoking each other and causing tempers to flare?
Well, most of the time the culprit is this:Â disrespect.
Kids take advantage of parentsâ€¦ when they see moms and dads modeling disrespect towards each other.Â Without respect for your partner, nothing in your system of discipline at home will work.Â Respect between a husband and wife is the key to building a strong familyâ€¦ to teaching children value for themselves and others.Â Itâ€™s at the heart of building a mature, responsible, likable adult.
Isnâ€™t that what you want for your kids?
Model it.Â Teach it.Â Above allâ€¦ respect each other.
