How to earn a teenager’s respect and trust [video]

I recently overheard a conversation among some parents and youth workers who seemed to feel like they should demand a teenager’s respect because the Bible commands it and they deserve it based on their position of authority, but I’m not sure that’s really the best way to gain their respect.

In this video I share a bit more about that conversation and my response to it.

QUESTION: How do you think we, as youth leaders and parents, can best earn a teenager’s respect and trust?
