How to treat every person right?

Hare Krishna!
As the title says, it's about treating every person right. I'm looking for something good to read or watch (listen) about it. As in, for example, how should I, being a man, being a teen (18), treat people around me. Old or young, woman or man, brother or sister, mother or father - everyone have to be treated accordingly; I'm especially interested in how women should be treated in various life situations.
I'm going to roam, google a bit, but it's always better when someone points you straight.


General approach should be

General approach should be the respect to everyone but those who're inimical to Krsna, guru, devotees, sastras, etc. Those persons should be ignored. See SB 11.2.46.
Men should see women as mothers (with exception of one's wife).

Proper Vedic behavior (Sans. niti) is described in various niti sastras, the most famous being the one by Canakya aka Kautilya.

Thank you.

I've started reading the Sri Chanakya Niti-Sastra english translation, if there'll be any questions, I'll come back. Thank you.

Question regarding some niti.

"He who gives up shyness in monetary dealings, in acquiring knowledge, in eating and in business, becomes happy."

"He who is not shy in the acquisition of wealth, grain and knowledge, and in taking his meals, will be happy."

So I shouldn't "hold back" when someone gives me food? Or when I'm in a situation where I would request money or something? Well, it's seems so, however I would like to hear it from someone else too, since our interpretation may not always be correct, so...
