Adult Children Need to Respect You, Don’t Make Excuses for Bad Behavior

We tend to relate respect and love that to a male female relationship, but that is also true to your children. Why should they treat you any different? In fact they should be the ones who treat you the best. They are the ones you sacrificed everything for.

What is wrong with your kids saying please, thank you or your welcome? What is wrong with them appreciating what you do instead of taking you for granted?

Sometimes adults that were abusive do a complete 360 and over compensate. That can also be dangerous. That causes a child to feel entitled. They don’t learn to earn anything or appreciate you. They take you for granted. Oh they love you but they don’t learn to respect you.

So when you say I can’t or won’t they have that look of “WHAT?” or “NO YOU DIDN’T!”

When you babysit for them they don’t offer you a dime. They don’t offer to fill your tank, bring you flowers, or do a little something just because. They don’t anything because they think you should. You should remind me you did your job. You raised them, it is not your job to raise your grandkids it is their job. When the time comes I will spend as much time as I can with mine. But my daughters will raise them as I did mine. If my daughters really need me I will be there but I will never be taken for granted.

Teaching them responsibility is not wrong, it is love. The way you treat yourself sets the pattern in how others treat you. Your kids are no exception.

How many men or women lose a good potential partner because they have bratty, entitled or disrespectful children? The  worse is when they are adults. They are no longer children but act like it. They are bratty, sit around will no goals and make demands on you. And what do you do? You bow down. Instead of standing up making them go to school or get a job you enable the bad behavior. You allow them to mistreat and abuse you.

Yes that what it is. If no one else has told you I am. STOP IT!!!  You are hurting them. You are stunting their growth. You will allow them to become adults that lie on others couches, borrow money, hop from job to job…why? Because you are not making them do anything for themselves. You are letting them lie around and do absolutely nothing.
