Day 19, Disrespecting Your Parents

It has been a while since I have done any of the 30 day challenge posts and since my sweet baby girl has gone down for bed I thought it would be the perfect time to post the next one.

When thinking about the topic of disrespecting you parents the first thing that came to mind was of course the ten commandments and how one fifth one is “Honour thy father and thy mother”. Plain and simple right? Not always. No one is perfect and believe me I am not perfect and was even less than when I was a teenager!

Above is a picture of myself with my parents before my wedding reception. I love them so much! They have taught me so much and have given me everything I needed and a lot of the things I wanted, even though I probably didn't deserve a lot of it.

Along with saying those things I also want to give them a public apology for the many many times I disrespected them as a child and especially as a teenager. Words were said, screaming happened and doors were slammed and I wish I could take it all back but since I can't I will just say that I AM SORRY!!

To me respecting your parents means different things through out your life. As a child and teenager living under your parent's roof you respect your parents by obeying them, by helping them without having to be asked and by showing love and thanks for all that they do for you. Now that I am an adult the honoring of my parents has not stopped and will not but it is different than the honoring of them that I did when I was young. Now I can honor my parents by going to them for advice, talking to them often, and telling them that I love them as much as I can.

I really do love and respect my parents and the people they are and I hope one day I can become strong just like them. I also am glad that I will have them there for me when one day my daughter, even if she does not mean it, might disrespect me. It will make me sad and so I am glad I have my parents there who can comfort me during those hard times that I once put them through.

Of course the reasons I listed above are not the only ways you can respect your parents, there are many ways you can. List some of the ways you like to honor and respect your parents in the comments!


  1. Beautifully written. are forgiven! I love you.

  2. Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I'll just sum it up
    what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.

    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.
    Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers?
    I'd definitely appreciate it.

    1. My recommendations are to try not to get too overwhelmed. Start out slow and steady especially if you have other things going on in your life like a job or kids. Good Luck with your blog, it really is fun.
