Respect isn't taught anywhere. It is no longer something that those in authority because of that authority.

Even if it is taught in some homes, that doesn't mean that young children (or even older ones for that matter) won't go along with the rest of the crowd.

How often do we hear respect has to be earned. It is the new motto. For some people the level to which one must rise to earn respect is unreachable. We live in a society where everyone wants to be able to do whatever they want, when they want, and how they want others be damned until that lack of control impact them. Then they want others to behave how they want, when they want, and in line with their view of what should be done. It is hypocrisy on a daily basis. Don't tell me what to believe, think, feel or do, but let me tell you how to do all of those things.

Kids are confused even if parents are trying to teach respect when society keeps telling them other things.
