Do you still respect your parents?

With the kind of society we live in today - where individual's rights are given importance more than ever - would you say you still respect your parents? What I mean is, do you still follow their rules without question, do you still think highly of them, do you still not talk back to them? I, for one, still respect my parents and I will continue to respect them for so long as I live because after all, I wouldn't be here if it were not for them.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

I do still respect them, i think that's the fundamental one can ever express towards their parents. however i think respect doesnt equal listening to their "rules" especially without question, it's kinda a very dangerous thing to do in itself especially if we are not opinionated we have a tendency to take on whatever traits parents have including not-so-nice ones.
Rather i feel that respect comes in variety of ways, eg calling them papa mama, listening to their POV before i told them mine if there's any issues, go out to eat tgt etc.
Hmmm,... i think if one have a more or less harmonious relationship with your parents without much of domination of any party, respect is there already.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

Respecting one's parents is something children must do, not only because of obligation but because we truly love our parents and they deserve all the respect that we can offer. I know some parents are hard to respect because of their loose values and morals, yet, they still need to be honored, if only for the reason that without them we will never be alive.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

I don't follow any culture. So very bluntly, I don't respect my parents for my own reasons, and if I had a choice, I wouldn't wish to be born either. For the effort in raising me though, I will 'raise' them when I start earning money, and that's all to it.

Usual, for us to respect persons, they have to give us a reason to. As for me, my parents are respectable. They've given me all the reasons in the world to show them honour.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

Respecting time isn't the same as respecting their rules and ideias.
I respect my parents more than anything but I'm 18 now and there are a lot that I don't agree with them and I intent to show that to them. I don't always follow their rules and their advices but I'll always respect and love them.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

Yes, I still do! I respect my parents because they have worked so hard to raise me. My dad has once told me that he had a hard time raising me because I was always sick when I was little. I remember I used to go to the hospital once a week for four years. I had this strange fever that I constantly went to the hospital to get shots, which was very annoying to my parents. I respect my parents because that's who I am, not to mention they have supported me all along since the day I was born.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

I don't think there's much choice in either respecting or disrespecting your parents. It's the obligation of the kids to respect their parents under all circumstances unless their demands contravene societal ethics. In that instance, you can disagree with them and be right and no one will question your decision.

I agree kids are obliged to respect their parents until a certain age even if they're right or wrong because they're the ones in charge, but not when they are young adults or even teens, of course. Since I was 16 I didn't take much of what my parents told me simply because I did not agree with their opinions, and I've always stuck with my beliefs.
I do respect their ideas and choices and advices and whatever but that doesn't mean I have to follow them or agree with them. Parents raise their kids to follow their ideas and beliefs since they are born, at least I was raised that way, but when we start to form our own ideas it's not our job to follow what our parents want us to follow. At least I never did again.
But I will always love my parents and praise the way they raised me.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

Family values are being broken down which means a lot of children are not respecting there parents anymore, in the UK if a parent beats there child that child can call the police and have there parents arrested. I think children have a decent chance if they grow up in a culture where parents have to be respected.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

I will ALWAYS respect my parents. They have made me into the person I am today. They have helped me strive in life, and have shown me how to be honest and how to love others. Yes, of course, like everyone eskers parents mine still do get on my nerves. But who's doesn't? I've come to realize that they're just showing me the right way. They have loved me and cared for me my whole life. They've given ms everything I could ever ask for, and I owe it to them at LEAST by respecting them

I can't help but respect them. They have given me every reason too. I won't say I have the best parents in the world. My mother did her best to groom me into a disciplined gentleman, and my father, though he wasn't around for 6 years of my adolescence life, took care of me when he came back. Respect is a decision though, so even if these parents weren't good parents to me , I believe I would still have to treat them with due respect.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

I am now 33 years old and respect my parents more than I have ever done before.As a teenager I was sort of rebellious and depending on the situation I would voice my opinion.. However, I was never disrespectful. Theres been plenty of times I have been very upset with my parents but I never cursed at them or harmed them,

There is no "still" in it because I do and will always respect my parents. We may not have had everything we wanted but they fought to get us what we needed. I will always be grateful for what they have done and tried to do for me.

Re: Do you still respect your parents?

Yes, I still respect both of my parents but I have learned over the years that my parents are human and aren't always right, although they'll always have my best intentions at heart. I've also discovered that just because my parents say something, doesn't mean that I have to do it. Growing up, I followed 100% of my parents advice but now I know that sometimes it's best to follow my heart.

I still show my mother respect and ask for her opinion on a regular basis. Even if she weren't my mother I would still think highly off her because she is such a caring and supportive person.
