Respect is one of those things that need to be earned, and it goes both ways. I don’t really believe that kids (because they are kids) are obligued to obey and respect their parents just because the parents say so, or expect it. Especially if the parents do not treat them with respect. I have met people who respected their parents as kids but as soon as they were adults, the respect was gone…why? because respect earned through fear and intimidation is temporary.
Education is super important. At least to me, education can mean many things… I don’t believe that a person can receive education ONLY by going to any form of school, I think life, home, and self-discovery provide education too. So by any means necessary, and wherever you can find it… educate yourself.
