Also you did not give any information that could be helpful in giving proper advice to you as well. We do not know how many boys there are, what their attitudes have been, what things they are doing, and so on that makes you ask how you get respect.

I have a teenage boy. And I do not have problems with respect at all though he does have his moments when he gets frustrated about things and knows I can not do anything about them. He also knows I do not stand for it and he gets told once and he stops. I have done those things below with both my kids, the other is a daughter who is in her 20's now and has a family of her own. What about my thoughts does not work?

You should have established this a long time ago when they were younger and learning how to behave. By having done this, the respect that the kids had for the parents would grow over time. By setting up rules that you could build on as they grew up was also something they needed. The kids also needed some boundary system to live by as well and the parent needed to keep it in place. The kids also needed examples on how to treat others too as this is a sign of respect as well. But you also need to respect them as well and earn their respect. Demands, excessive expectations, and other negative things will not win the kids over. Using common sense also would help in this too.
