What are some ways to prepare my kids to respect other adults in a new environment?

Preparing your child to transition into another setting and following instructions and rules from another authority figure is going to be most aided by helping your child be really good at following instructions in the home. Practice with your child at home on following instructions and following basic rules in the house such as keeping your hands and feet to yourself or other basic household rules that you have. Be very consistent about providing high rates of praise for those behaviors and very consistent about providing consequences when they break those rules. The better they are at following those rules at home the better chance you are going to have of them being compliant with other adults outside of the home setting and in other settings outside the home.
