Many parents are always talking about respect and how they want their children to be respectful, well here are all the true values that children should have, and an explanation. Parents should probably read this. I know many people dont know the reasons of their actions or why they even do the things they do.
The Meaning of Family Values. Life and people are always changing, but the main values and bases of the concept of family should always remain present. To many people, the definition of the word family is a unity among a group of people who care and tend to each other's needs, while forming an unbreakable bond. Therefore, family values are important and should be cherished and nurtured. Love, support, friendship, and guidance are key qualities necessary to form a family bond. Family is considered to be an elite and exclusive society in which most people in today's world do not belong to or do not have the privilege of being a part of.
The love within a family teaches a child about solidarity, which brings the teachings of virtue, sensitivity and assertiveness. Everyone has the need to feel loved, but the best love there can be is the love of a family. Children, who grow without a family, are more likely to be unhappy simply because of the lack of love that they can't receive anywhere else. The influence of family life should never be underestimated. Some people define family as simple genetics; however, that is not always the case.
Children had and will always be the future for a better tomorrow; therefore, parents and schools should provide them with the necessary "equipment". This equipment will help children when they become adults to live their life by having limitations related to the ethic meaning. The values that they will have will be good sources for knowing what is correct and what is wrong. Furthermore, the values will be a guide to their life. Since values are important for the children's life, family and school should become an origin of unlimited values. In families, children will learn the values that their parents consider appropriate while in schools children will learn some basic values. When parents are teaching values, their actions will deliver to the children the clearest meanings. This is happening since children learn by observing, so the way that parents will spend their free time or even their money will mirror on their children's character. The parents should set rules that reflect the values they believe, because then the meaning of the values will be easier. Also, the parents must be effective advocates and this can be accomplished by being caring, loving parents and teachers who set the good example.
In three separate dictionaries, respect is basically defined as a regard for or appreciation of the worth or value of someone or something. In my opinion, respect goes far beyond this definition. Respect is the basis of the society in which we live. Although many look at respect as simply treating another person or thing with kindness, this word has many different aspects. For instance, I would not give an elder the same type of respect that I would give my peers or myself. Respect is not considered a need in this world but, I can't imagine a person getting very far in life without this skill. Self-respect is probably the most important value for a person. It is said that in order to earn the respect of others, a person needs to learn to treat other individuals with respect, many learn this skill from their parents by the famous saying: "Treat others the way you want to be treated."
Bullying among children is understood as repeated, negative acts committed by one or more children against another. These negative acts may be physical or verbal in nature, for example, hitting or kicking, teasing or taunting, or they may involve indirect actions such as manipulating friendships or purposely excluding other children from activities. Bullying used to be considered a part of growing up, unpleasant but unavoidable. The law now recognizes that bullying at school can cause immense harm and unhappiness. Bullying among primary school age children has become recognized as an antecedent to more violent behavior in later grades. Not only does bullying harm both its intended victims and the perpetrators, it also may affect the climate of schools and, indirectly, the ability of all students to learn to the best of their abilities. Victims of bullying are often rejected by their peers, and are at risk for depression, dropping out of school, poor self-esteem, and other mental health problems. It is not only victims who are at risk for short- and long-term problems; bullies also are at increased risk for negative outcomes. Children who are bullies often attend school less frequently, and are less likely to go to college and live a successful life.
Many children and teens partake in "playful" teasing, or in other words, joking in a friendly matter, as long as the other individuals know you aren't serious. "Playful" teasing is common among siblings, and friends. An American school survey asks students if they tease their younger or older siblings. More than 90 percent say that they do tease their siblings as a way of showing them that they love them, or as side-affect of boredom. Parents sometimes don't see this, and may not understand the connection between siblings if they, as a child, did not have any brothers or sisters, or a parent to laugh with.
There isn't one culture on Earth, that doesn't have a way of showing respect towards another being in their community or environment. Most foreign countries usually take on respect as a manner of being noticeably nice, and affectionate. As in America, respect has to be earned in other countries too. In more primal countries, respect can be gained by being a good hunter, strong and bold. Or by killing your rival in combat, after these acts are committed, the respect is gained by the other members of the community, or village that the subject is living in. In many more civilized countries, respect can be gained by bravery, such as saving someone, or protecting someone. In almost all countries, respect is given to a person because of their job, people with jobs that risk their lives, are given respect from the members in their community, such as Police Officers, Soldiers, and Firemen.
During time periods such as the Middle Ages, respect was given to the Knights in the community, and high command subjects, such as a King, or a Prince. It is an international to show respect towards anyone of higher power than yourself, such as a child to their parents, parents to their boss, a boss to a manager, a manager to a company owner, a company owner to the government, and so on up the line, eventually leading to God. All countries believe in a God, and they all show the most respect to their God above all others.
