Here is a post I penned for Madamenoire.com on manners/respect and the comments have been off the chain. Let me know your thoughts and have a great weekend.
Just like Janet Jackson, please call me Ms. Karen or Mrs. Taylor-Bass, but certainly not Karen. We don’t roll like that if you are a child and under 25.
Is there something in the water or have children become too familiar with grown folks–thinking it’s okay to call us by the first name? Stop the madness; can a momma get a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T?
Respect is the notion of understanding that a high or special regard should be deferred to someone older. There are times when I feel that some kids are simply BeBe Kids dressed in nice gear with no manners.
