I'm very big on respect. Growing up my dad always told me that in order to get respect you must show respect. My kids are a wee young, but I show them to treat each other nicely because one doesn't like it when the other one is mean and vice versa.


Dad taught us respect by modeling it for us everyday.

Children give back what they are given. If you respect them and teach them to be polite they will reciprocate. My father always said please and thank you and treated me very respectfully. I in turn treat others that way.

My Dad showed respect to others and was a model to us. It wasn't just to other adults, but to kids, too. He respected us and showed us that we were important to him. He didn't talk negatively about other people...coworkers, boss, neighbors. He found the good things they did and respected that.

My dad taught me respect by modeling it for me. He always told me to greet adults and other people when I first see them.

My daddy always taught me that respect was key in any relationship. He was a perfect model of that. He taught me to speak politely, and shake someones hand when I met them. I just hope I can instill in my children the values my dad taught me!

My Dad taught me to give respect and you will get it back ten fold. Respecting others shows a sign of maturity. I have a 3 1/2 year old daughter. When we go to to playground she is always respectful of others, she doesn't ever hit,raise her voice or throw tantrums. I believe my husband and I have shown her the right way and we are very proud of our daughter!

My dad's best advice was to treat others like you want to be treated. He taught me that it doesn't hurt to be nice and respectful and if you are nice and respectful you will be happier.

My father taught me respect by the way he treated my mother, my sister and I and his friends. He was kind and thoughtful and he never hurt our feelings and if he accidentally did he would apologize. He taught me to go out of my way to treat someone, whoever they are, with respect and to not judge them or make assumptions.

I think my parents taught us 6 kids respect by Example. They raised us to be respectful of everyone and everything. There was a heavy hand and a loving heart with my dad. My mom has always treated not only strangers and others Respect but also my dad and our kids.. You learn what you live I guess is what I am trying to say.
Thanks for the chance this is an amazing campaign

My dad taught us to respect others to get respect back.
I teach the twins to respect by teaching them not to interrupt their elders, Be kind to their little cousins and share. Also how to use "please", "Thank You" "No thanks" and "excuse me"

Happy Fathers Day to dads out there!!
