Parenting for Respect: Why I Made My Daughter Walk to School

Parenting for Respect: Why I Made My Daughter Walk to School

This morning, while my 10-year-old daughter was walking to school, I followed behind her. Some people questioned why I did this while others gave me disapproving looks. The reason for my actions is simple: my daughter forgot how to treat adults, thought her size equated to authority, and her behavior was unacceptable towards me and other adults. I want her to appreciate the free ride to and from school, respect and listen to me, and understand that I'm her mom, not her friend. My ultimate goal is for her to become a responsible and respectful person. While some may fear hurting their child's feelings, I fear my child growing up to become entitled. Therefore, I watched as she walked, thought, reflected, matured, learned, and grew.
