Foster Respect Between You and Your Teen - ETB #49

Respecting each other is not just good idea to help your relationship grow stronger, but God requires that we show respect. In I Peter 2:17 (NIV) the Bible says, “Show proper respect to everyone, love the family of believers, fear God, honor the emperor.”

In this episode I share ways you can foster respect between you and your child.

Ways to Foster Respect Between You and Your Teen

  • Understand your child’s point of view.
  • Remember every person is made in God image.
  • Let your child feel seen and heard.
  • Look at your teen in the eyes
  • Serve one another
  • Monitor how you speak to each child

Over the years I’ve seen well-intentioned parents who believed respect wasn’t a two way street. They demanded to be respected by their child, but failed to understand their responsibility to show respect to their child. When you take the time to show your child respect, your child will start to mirror your example.
