The 5th Commandment:

King James Version: Honour thy father and thy mother
English Standard Version: Honor your father and your mother
New Living Translation: Honor your father and mother

I have always considered the Ten Commandment a fairly good guideline for people to follow.

I also believe that one earns respect – it is not something given without cause.  Children learn by observing others – therefore, parents need to set the example and show respect for others and their children.

One thing most parents agree on when it comes to parenting is that they want to teach their children to become respectful, polite and kind to others. Nothing makes a parent as proud as knowing you taught your child respect for other people. While most parents agree that this is important, many feel lost when it comes to teaching children this behavior. Teaching respect to a child is teaching them to become self-confident, mature and responsible. Respecting others' rights also teaches your child important core values that they will use throughout their lives.
