Raising Respectful Children in a Disrespectful World by Jill RigbyThis inspirational parenting guide offers proactive and positive steps to raising respectful, engaged, and grateful children.In an effort to raise children with a healthy view of themselves, parents often focus on self-esteem rather than self-respect. And author Jill Rigby says theres a big difference. Its the difference between self-centered and others-centered children, the difference between performance-driven and purpose-focused teenagers.
Raising Respectful Children in a Disrespectful World examines three different styles of parenting--parent-centered, child-centered, and character-centered. Parent-centered parents are more concerned with their own agenda than their childs best interest. Child-centered parents are more concerned with their childs approval than their childs well-being. Character-centered parents are more concerned with their childs character than their childs comfort. Drawing a distinction between performance and purpose, this book maintains that rather than focusing on what you want your child to do, you ask what you want your child to become. Finally, Rigby calls for parents to discipline (teach) their children rather than punish them.
With wisdom and insight, Jill Rigby shares age-appropriate ways to set boundaries with children without building walls of separation. Whether youre parenting tots or teens, Raising Respectful Children in a Disrespectful World offers valuable advice for cultivating a house of respect.

What does the Bible say about? For anyone who curses his father or his mother shall surely be put to death; he has cursed his father or his mother; his blood is upon him. So you shall purge the evil from your midst, and all Israel shall hear, and fear. The eye that mocks a father and scorns to obey a mother will be picked out by the ravens of the valley and eaten by the vultures. But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty.
Last week, I shared some thoughts on teaching boys to be respectful. Respect, Part 1. This conversation sounds silly, but how often do we do this as parents? God has given me the job of being a parent. It is my responsibility to make decisions about what I think will be best for my sons, and I will answer to God for those decisions.
