An exert from the book Positive Parenting: An Essential Guide...
"The major problems we face in society from crime to racism stem from a lack of respect and kindness to our fellow human beings, and if we continue to grow children with disrespect, this will never change. When we set the standard so low in those early years for how young and vulnerable humans should be treated, we can't expect humanity to rise above those standards. The cycle of disrespect just keeps repeating." She explains that children feel our respect by how we "respond when they cry, correct them when they make a mistake, hold them through their fears...Peace on earth begins in how we treat the littlest humans today."
