Sometimes it's best to make changes within yourself. Such as change your reaction. Event plus reaction creates the result. Next time you are disrespected give a new response so your adult child can learn to not treat you rudely. It takes time them old habits die hard. good luck!!
If you havnt tried this then try: respect the person as an adult. One cannot be treating their child like one did when they were in high school. Maybe all that rebellious attitude is because of the way your making him/her feel, which could be as a child? I know i demanded that respect from my own mother especially as i became mature.
Stop allowing this behavior! You wouldn't allow a stranger to do this, why would you allow someone who loves you to do this? Next time you talk or you could write a letter, explain that you love them and would love to have a relationship with them but you will not allow this type of disrespectful treatment any longer! Then be strong and let it go. They will either grow up and start treating you better or they will just stop calling and being disrespectful.
Well this person is not a kid anymore I am 20 years old and have a great relationship with my parents but bc they respect what I do and don't try and tell me what to do with my life i say give them a little room to breathe and they might start to respect u again but as I said just rem that this person is a adult now good luck to u
Slap his mouth he will think twice next time. Trust my sons 24/21/18 and were taught to respect but most young adults try to see how far well go I had to let my son know if he ever curses at me again he will be smacked !
I think you just have to live it. Respect yourself, for real. To woman-up, stop being that you, start the day being the you you want to be. You can see it, right? Yourself that way, respecting yourself, Not taking any more nonsense. It sounds like what your doing hasn#039;t worked. So don#039;t keep doing the same thing expecting a different outcome. Just put that you to work. You#039;re right there, I think this could be your next step. But these are just some thoughts that happened, I could be way off. But if I#039;m not, it#039;s just a step.
