How to Respect Each Other

Do you respect each other?

Treating each  with respect seems to a downfall over the years

Respect  starts at home I don’t think a child could learn  of respect on the street.

It is entirely up to parents to make  the discipline of respect part of their children’s lives

What has changed?


Most families lack respect for each other,  their busy lifestyles have taken over their lives,  in this way communication doesn’t exist in these families leading to disrespectful families.  You think your family is a perfect one,  but if  you take the time and focus on the little issues at home,  you will notice respecting each other  has  somehow disappeared


If you don’t communicate with your children on a daily basis how would you gain respect  for each other?

Often  there is no respect because parents don’t have  the time for their children and everybody else in the family follow their own paths  which they feel  is comfortable for them.  If parents don’t play their part in their children’s lives how will respect be gained?

Treating one with respect makes you feel good and a better person too.  Be it at home or in public, why only do it at home, you can  also respect others in public.

Respect each other in the following ways

Don’t make fun of others, or laugh at them it is being disrespectful

Pay attention to conversation when talking to each other, don’t deviate from your moment of conversation

Value other people’s opinions

Don’t speak of others when they are not with you

Be  sensitive to other people’s feelings

Avoid pressuring anyone to do something they don’t want to do

Respect other people’s wishes

The different cultures,  languages, and kinds of people that you work with or come across daily when on the street  have different backgrounds and  are taught differently. You should respect this about them. Everyone is different in a unique way.

Instead learn something from the other

Don’t stereotype people

Show appreciation fro other people’s cultures

Avoid getting into racist  and prejudice attitudes.

Have an understanding of the importance of  respectful behaviour

Depending on the  kind of people you encounter daily,  try to  avoid being rude, sometimes certain people don’t care about respecting another, it doesn’t mean you should be the same.

Your first social skill should be proactive listening

Show consideration, act accordingly after listening to the conversation, give a hint to how they are feeling, don’t just walk away from the conversation without interest.

Promises shouldn’t be  broken, keep your word to someone, this will make you feel of value to them, a person who  keeps promises is someone of integrity.

Be punctual, never be late, treat them with value

Don’t interrupt conversations, , be polite, don’t forget your PLEASE THANK YOU, and EXCUSE ME 

Encouraging can be empowering and liberating

Be fair, avoid corruption it will be appreciated if you gave people what they need, and deserve. 

Go out of your way  go the extra mile without being rewarded, show  them the importance of your friendship

Preserve dignity, approach people in a  a way to preserve their dignity, if mistreated or upset. Speak calmly

Do Not Assume, don’t do this, instead you should start off each interaction by thinking of the other as your equal.

When  standing in queues don’t push and complain it is part of what one has to accept but,  not everyone is the same.

People react differently

  1. I couldn’t agree more with your article. If we don’t respect, we can’t expect to be respected and good communication is the key. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Very valuable points. Life has become so mercantile these days that almost no one cares about virtues and values in our life. Everyone rushes for job and money, and busy parents barely pay attention to their children in the evenings when they come back from work. Sad, but true, once a song said…
