When you give respect to somebody they should give you respect in return. For example, if my mom told me not to have girls in her house when she is not there, and I don’t have any girls at my house, that is showing respect.

Without respect you won’t make it any where in life. You won’t get a good job without respect or you won’t get a scholar ship for any sports without respect. That’s why some players in the NFL don’t play because they don’t have any respect.

You should always teach your children to show and have respect to their parents, teachers and any adults. If you give respect you will get respect. I’m glad I’m raised with respect because if I wasn’t I would not be a good student in school, I wouldn’t listen to the teacher, and I would talk when she is talking.
