Teachers are literally the second parents to our kids. Why is this? This is because parents are not able to teach kids about some things that only teachers can do. Most of the times, children spend more time with their teachers than they spend with their parents. Teachers play a very big role to ensure kids do well in studies and also in their social life. Teachers help children to discover who they are and also the areas that they are perfect in.
Imagine how amazing teachers are, to an extent of loving your kids like their own. It is really hard to deal with kids but teachers strive to make sure that the kids have gained quality skills. This means that teachers should be respected by kids. This will motivate them to have the zeal to continue with their good work of enlightening your kids.
You should teach you kids these:
1. Being on time.
Teachers have different times set for different activities. You should always prepare your kid early so that they get to school on time. In between lessons, there are some short breaks, so you should always ask your kid to be where they should be at the right time. Mostly if children are late for certain activities, teachers take it as being disrespectful.
2. Working on their assignments and homework as instructed.
Most of the times, children are assigned to some tasks to work on when they get home and maybe submit the homework the following day. As a parent, you should always ask your child to complete the homework as instructed by the teacher. Sometimes when kids fail to complete their assignments or homework, teachers feel ignored and this sounds disrespectful.
3. Enlighten them on how important teachers are.
If your kids really understand how important their teachers are, they cannot disrespect them. Teach your kids how important teachers are. You can use different strategies, like you can tell them that teachers are there to ensure that kids achieve their goals. Tell them how their teachers care about them and their future.
4. Help them practice good manners.
You should teach your children about the language they should use while addressing their teachers. Use of words such as please, thank you, sir, and madam. They should greet their teachers with respect and using the right kind of greetings. You should teach your kids all these kinds of etiquette.
5. Be polite to your kids and other people.
Most of the times, kids copy what their parents do. If you are polite to your kids and other people, your kids will definitely want to practice that too. They will show this kind of respect to everyone including their teachers. Do not shout at your kids when you are angry because they might try doing that to their teachers when they are angry.
Respect is a virtue that all kids should learn. Teachers need to be respected not only because they do good to children but also because everyone should be respected. It is your duty to teach your children the art of respect.
