I don't command respect. I earn it.
By being quiet when someone's misbehaving. Think before I talk & think before I act...
Did you try asking nicely?
By giving it.
You mean demand?
I command respect by showing respect and by being open to what you have to offer. I don't make loose judgment calls. I ba<x>se my own opinions on what I believe to be sound and logical explanations for something.
