What can be said to my adult children about the importance of giving respect to your mother regardless of her life style

If you are a religious parent, you can quote for them some of the scriptures about honoring the parents. They should also know that whatever goes around also comes around and that they may face the same opposition from their children. Talk to them and let them know the hard times that you have gone through just to raise them up and they should respect you for that.

Are you a decent role model? You have to give respect to get respect.

something go the mother went some what of track using drugs. Since then she has come back on track and living her life the best that she can. But her children cant seem to forget what she has done. She raised all of her children correctly and worked all of her life to support them. And not one of them res pect her.

Your children have not walked in your shoes. When they have their own children you can catch them unawares by asking could they imagine their darlling and loved children ever rejecting them..... and then let them realise or make the point as in "The Cats In the Cradle" by Cat Stevens...

Nothing. Leave it be. Get on with your own life. If you force the issue, it will only get worse.

Well children always want a mother to be proud of as we as mother want children to be proud of now that being said being a mother is about selfless if your children are now adults you can tell them as I did my son the first part of my life I lived to please you now that you are an adult I will live the 2nd part of my life to please myself
