Don't demand respect as a parent.
Demand civility and insist on honesty.
But respect is something you must earn-with kids as well as with adults.
-William Attwood

I think as parents we demand respect because we are the parent and the elder- but all too often we demand respect by raising our voices or other disrespectful behavior.
If we're not acting respectful-how can we possibly demand it?
