We’ve all been around kids who haven’t learned respect yet, and probably all resolved at one point or another that our kids would learn to be polite and respectful when out in the world. But how to get there?
Recently I was asked to review the book Raising Respectful Children in a Disrespectful World. It’s all about parenting in a way that focuses on character training above everything else. The book emphasizes the importance of connecting with a child’s heart to better influence their decision-making and shares ideas for character training at every age.
As an experienced momma, I didn’t learn huge amounts of new information, but there were lots of good reminders. The book was a great encouragement to stay the course, keep working on heart-connection, and unapologetically, repetitively, and gently call on my kids to interact respectfully with the folks in the world around them.
Now– good news: I’ve got a copy of this book to give away today. All you have to do to enter the giveaway is share one facet of of good manners that makes an impression on you. I personally appreciate it when my kids’ friends make eye contact and are willing to have a few sentences on conversation with me.
What about you? When you interact with a child or a teen, what leaves you saying, ‘Wow, that kid had good manners?’ I’ll choose a winner on Monday!
I was given a copy of this book in exchange for a review. The opinions stated are my own.
