    No, but they are young yet :P
    In truth I don't have a problem telling anyone they're treating me disrespectfully. I don't wait for someone else to step in, I just stand up for myself (which I admit isn't always easy, it was a skill I had to learn).
    As vic park says via dr phil, you teach people how to treat you This also applies to your partner.

    I also want to add, we treat the kids with kindness and respect too, it is something they learn by watching us

    In that kind of situation my dp would have told her if it's good enough for mum to cook it for you it's good enough for you to eat, he's very old school like that, however when it's something I know my dd doesn't like I don't push the issue.

    My dd is really rude to me a lot, she has awful attitude and I don't know what to do about it. So I don't really have any advice, for us it's like beating our heads against a brick wall, she currently having assessments for adhd, so we will see.

    He doesn't care if they are rude. We just talked about it again and I made it clear I think it was disrespectful and not acceptable but he can't see the big deal. Apparently the whole issue is I spend too much time on my phone which really pees me off as he's always on his, has a work life, social life, hobby. I have zero time away from this house I'm struggling big time and have no friends with young kids or family here. I dropped my birth clubs and bub hub to be more present at home but I got so lonely and depressed. I need an outlet to express my frustrations. He was so rude to me it's not hard to see where dd gets it. Not that I'm perfect by a long shot but it's so busy with 2 school kids and a baby. I'm trying to find individual time for them but it's hard and I'm so stressed and the person I look to for support just flicks all the blame onto me. Sorry sob story I'm just over it

    My almost 8 year old does the same thing. I tell her she's being rude. I made her luncg for school last night (for today) apparently I did it wrong.

    We are raising children to become well rounded adults. If they don't learn respect at home they won't be liked by peers, will struggle to remain employed and will have less than awesome lives. 'Gross' is disrespectful language to me. It's ok to not like something but the delivery of that message needs to be done with respect and there needs to be appreciation of the effort. I suggest Ms 8 gets her butt into the kitchen and becomes your kitchen helper for the next week. As for your partner he could do with a dose of reality. If he doesn't value respect for the mother of his children then he needs a kick in the pants.
