Mutual respect

How do you command respect? Do you just model it or do you also ask that your husband and children honor you?

I both model and ask for respect. I do my very best to show my children respect I don't think you can ask a child to respect you when you show them no respect just because they are children. If its not something life treating I give my child the chance to correct his behavior before I force him to change it that's about as much respect as my son is old enough to understand right now he's 19 months. As far as my husband I show him the utmost respect and he shows me the same. In our marriage he is also the one that commands that others respect me that includes our children and yes he's had to lay down the law so to speak with my son a few times already if he's around and my son say yells at me my husband is the one that reprimands him not me. He wants to teach my son that men respect women at all times no matter what.
