Do Your Kids Respect You? 9 Ways to Change Their Attitude
By Janet Lehman, MSW
We often forget that children aren’t born with a built-in sense of respect for others. While each child has a different personality, all children need to be taught to be respectful. From birth, kids learn to manipulate their world to get their needs met—this is natural. But it’s our job as parents to teach them respectful ways of doing this.
People wonder why kids have gotten so much more disrespectful these days—we see children and teens arguing with adults (or ignoring them outright), using foul language, copping an attitude, and not using manners or respecting those in authority. Sadly, this has become the norm for many children and teens. In my opinion, it really is a different world right now than the one we grew up in. Movies, music, video games and television all seem to glorify a disrespectful, angry, rude way of dealing with others. This means that in some ways we have to work harder as parents to teach our kids to be respectful. Added to this is the fact that parents are also busier than ever before, which makes it much harder to respond immediately to our kids. Let’s face it, it’s easier to let things slide when you’re worn out and stressed from working so hard.

Fatherlessness in the U.S. remains a prevalent issue as the number of children living apart from their biological fathers is estimated to be nearly 30 percent (or roughly one in three), according to 2011 Pew Research data.
The number of children living apart from their biological fathers has more than doubled over the last four decades amid a growing decline in nuclear families.
In 1960, 11 percent of children lived apart from their biological fathers as compared to 27 percent in 2010.
One Christian artist says he hopes his music will spark conversations about the growing problem and bring healing to families across the nation.
In August, acclaimed singer/songwriter Brian Nhira released his new single "Back Where You Belong" from his debut album Hope's Stand. The powerful track is described as an "anthem for the fatherless," and Nhira told The Christian Post about how a shopping trip to a local Walmart inspired the song.
"The song was inspired by an experience I had as a college student," Nhira, a graduate of Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, told CP. "I went to this Walmart (across the street from campus) and one of the things the Lord was highlighting in my mind was these mothers who were there shopping with their kids and struggling to look after their kids and shop at the same time. And so the question arose in my mind 'Where is the father?'"

YAH SO LOVED THE WORLD, HE GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON TO RESTORE WHOLE AGAIN THE CONSCIENCE OF MAN .. THAT WHOEVER BELIEVES IN ALL HIS TESTIMONY, MIGHT NOT PERISH! FOR WHOEVER BELIEVES HIMSELF WISE ENOUGH BEFORE HE IS AGAIN REVEALED, IS ALREADY CONDEMNED FOR NOT BELIEVING THE ONLY BEGOTTEN SON!
LEST BY HIS GRACE YAH OPENS YOUR EYES TO BELIEVE THIS, YOU BEING WILLING TO SEE AND HEAR, YOU ARE ALL DEAF, BLIND AND DAMNED! (Isaiah 25:1-3>-10) NOT TO TELL YOU THIS, IS LOVE! TO LEAVE YOU UNWARNED, WOULD BE MURDEROUS DERELICTION OF DUTY, HATRED AGAINST THE PLAN OF YAH!
Eph 2:1 And you are now dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you walk now according to the course of this world, in accord with the prince of the power of the deceitful spirit that is now working in the sons of disobedience. 3 You walk even now in the lusts of our flesh, indulging the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and are yet by nature CHILDREN OF WRATH, even as the rest. 4 But YAH, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even while we have been dead in our transgressions, has promised to make us alive together with HIS KURTI (by grace you have been saved), 8 For by HIS grace (HE REVEALING HIMSELF) you may be SAVED through FATH; for THIS FAITH is NOT of yourselves, (NOT of ANY WORLDLY STATUS QUO) .. it is the GIFT GRACE of YAH; 2:12 REALIZE that you have been NOW departed from the KNOWLEDGE of THE KURTI, FAR OFF from discerning the EXPECTATION and COMMONWEALTH of ISRAEL, STRANGERS to the COVENANT OF PROMISE, having had NO HOPE, WITHOUT YAH, IN and OF the WORLD.
