  • Generally I do

    I've always believed in the notion that respect is earned, not just given. In the case of little kids, give them respect, even if they're acting out, as it's our job to guide them. In the case of stranger teens though, hell no. If they want to act stupid and act like adults, then treat them like you would a disrespectful adult

  • Yes kids need respect

    Kids sometimes feel bad because their parents tell them what to do whenever. When a kid asks their parents to get them something they always say they can get it themselves, which is really rude. When a kid says that to an adult they get in trouble. It's not fair to kids to get in trouble for saying a bad word. An adult can say what ever they want to whomever they want.

  • Of Course Yes!

    Parents just say things that totally contradict each other: parents seemingly deserve respect no matter what... But kids must earn theirs! Threatening them with a belt should not be the true answer! Parents often don't give kids as much chances as they need to evolve into nice young cool men!

  • Yes they should

    People often look down on kids and can be very patronising because of a few stereotypes and stories from the media. Sure, some kids are lazy, disrespectful and attention-seeking, but that's partly because they are still children. They're not fully grown yet and they don't fully understand things yet. Kids can be smart, but they're rarely given a chance to show this because people don't really think what they're capable of. Also, why is it that children have to earn their respect, but adults feel that they deserve respect no matter what?

  • Of Course, They Should Get Respect

    First of all, let me tell you that the mentioned trend is not a general one but still applicable for a noticeable amount of people, who still consider children as 'children', without even considering the inborn and acquired abilities of children. I hope that at least some of you might be having a little computer expert at your home, who could fix most of technical issues you might face during the PC-using experience and hence saving a lot of money you have to actually give for the technician. Just like this, children have their own abilities, for which they should be given optimum respect as well as consideration.

  • Yes i do

    Yes i think they should becasue ive seen that kids can be very smart. I was at a friends house where there computer was broken and there child was trying to help saying try pressing this but their parent just told them to go away and afterwoods her parent did was her daughter asked and it worked and i dont find it fair that kids dont get alo of respect of what they do and how they think there always wrong

  • REspect, yes. MORE? No.

    We already cater far too much to children in this generation. They have become lazy, entitled, and think they are the absolute center of the universe because their helicopter parents always did everything for them and protected them from any dents to their precious "self esteem".

    Kids need to learn that respect is EARNED not just given.

  • No I don't

    Children need to do things and try things themselves, For instance, Making Lunch (Even if it's just a sandwich) on their own. It can help them. But more to the point, children should earn Respect.

    'think they are the absolute center of the universe because their helicopter parents always did everything for them and protected them from any dents to their precious "self esteem". 'Exactly,correct. The same things happen to 95% of kids at school!
    As well as the kids who are always getting into trouble, always get praise and stuff. Where as the Gifted kids don't get and recognition at all!

  • Nah. Not at all

    For kids ages 7-16. Kids these days may have been smarter because of the technologies but they're becoming more and more disrespectful. Respect is earned, not given. I always see kids with so much tantrums and answers back to their parents (i so wanna squeeze their mouths and pinch their eyeballs).
