So no one teaches respect anymore?

From the other post, it seems that no one teaches respect anymore. I mean if you don't want to call a person Mister or Missus, that's you're personal choice, but wow, don't you at least know that it's respectful to do so? Or swearing in front of elderly people. Sorry that's the epitome of trashy, IJS. And I am far from modest, but seriously, there are some places I wouldn't even consider wearing my hoochie gear to.

So I can see why the younger generations are the way they are. No respect for themselves or others.

I TOTALLY agree! I was shocked by that post!!! I'm glad for my southern upbringing lol.

It makes me sad for the future than no one is being taught etiquette or respect!

Oh no.. my boys are being raised with "southern manners". We're all about "ladies first", saying yes/no sir/maam, opening doors up for people, letting elders go first, etc.

I agree, it is truly sad that children aren't being taught the most basic of manners.

I didn't see the post, but I've seen the elderly act like total disrespectful twits. They have mouths like sailors. It's not just the younger generation.

I'm teaching my girls to be polite and modest but also to never let anyone try to use them as a doormat. I'm a petite woman and it didn't take long for people to figure out I was nice but not taking anyone's crap.

I'm from the south and raise my kids to be respectful. They ask before then get anything. They open doors/hold doors for people. They say thank you, please and so on.

i didnt see the other post.... but growing up, me and my sister would get smacked by my mom whenever we called her ma'am or even mother... it was always mom.

DS is being brought up to say ma'am though... and even he's been yelled at a few times, by 'grandma' when she was around, b/c he'd call her that... i yelled back at her...

working on the Sir aspect, but with no guys around, he doesnt see/say it as often as ma'am, when i call him
