Because children see parents as authority figures and gods, they think that the way you treat them is the way they deserve to be treated: “What you say about me is what I am” is a literal truth to your child. Consequently, when children are treated with respect, they conclude that they deserve respect and hence develop self-respect.

No moral system can rest solely on authority.

There is no fettering of authority.
If you wish to know what a man is, place him in authority.
