In an effort to raise children with a healthy view of themselves, parents have focused on self-esteem rather than self-respect. And author Jill Rigby says there’s a big difference. It’s the difference between self-centered and others-centered children, the difference between performance-driven and purpose-focused teenagers.
This book also examines three different styles of parenting—parent-centered, child-centered and character-centered. Parent-centered parents are more concerned with their own agenda than their child’s best interest. Child-centered parents are more concerned with their child’s approval than their child’s well-being. Character-centered parents are more concerned with their child’s character than their child’s comfort.
A chapter on the School of Respect gives guidance for tots to teens and what the goal for each age group is and what training is necessary to reach that goal. This chapter also includes thirty-six ways to cultivate a house of respect.
Drawing a distinction between performance and purpose, this book maintains that rather than asking what you want your child to do, you ask what you want your child to become. In delineating the difference between being a coach to your child vs being a cheerleader, the author teaches parents the difference in offering false and genuine praise and applauding mediocrity vs engendering excellence. With wisdom and insight, Jill Rigby shares age-appropriate ways to set boundaries with children without building walls of separation. Finally, she calls for parents to discipline (teach) their children rather than punish them.

Using Hurricane Katrina as a backdrop, Jill Rigby, in her book "Raising Respectful Children in a Disrespectful World", compares the devastation and destruction of a hurricane to the storm facing parents today. With the combination of technology and social demands, it is difficult, but not impossible, to raise respectful children. Parents must set boundaries. They must set guidelines and follow through with disciplinary action when necessary. In other words, parents must act like parents.
Parenting requires sacrifice. Parenting means putting the needs of our children ahead of our own. It means being an example to your children of what respect means.
Rigby's advice goes beyond practical. She emphasizes the desire that all children want boundaries and that parents who fail to provide those boundaries and overindulge their children set them up to feel insecure and unsure of themselves.
If you want to raise children of purpose rather than children of performance, Rigby's book will show you how. If you want respectful children, you can make it happen even in a disrespectful world.
A small group study guide is included.
Jill Rigby is a character education and parenting expert and the founder of Manners of the Heart.
