How should I show/teach him to respect me without me yelling at him to not talk to me that way. It seems if I tell him "you don't talk to me that way" in an angry tone he'll get teary eyed and than listen for a moment. If I say it in a calm tone he'll just walk away. I was raised with the belt and I don't want to do that with my kids because it may have been effective for me when I was a child but its not for everyone and not the same method I would use on my kids. Any suggestions?
