Question by George C: How can we teach kids to be more respectful?
My parents taught me to call adults “sir” and “ma’am,” obey my elders, and accept the consequences of my actions. This was not very long ago, but it seems things have changed a lot since. I see kids today swear at their parents and refuse to do anything except sit around and watch TV. What should be done about this?

If you want respect, model respect. Children with good manners are typically raised by or influenced by adults with good manners. You really can’t do anything about anyone else’s children, but you can certainly make sure that your own turn out to be decent human beings.
