When I was at school I remember playing football on the weekends, surrounded by loads of parents who were there to support their kids.
But sometimes things used to get a bit out of hand. I remember some of the mums and dads shouting at the referee and at their own kids, to try to influence the game and make their kids play better.
Kids' views on respect barriers
I went to a school in Barnsley to see how the barriers worked. Loads of kids there said they were a great idea and that they took the stress out of the game.
But it's not just the players who say they're fed up with angry fans - referees are backing the respect barriers too.
Every year, 7,000 referees decide they don't want to do it anymore. The FA hopes the new campaign could persuade them not to hang up their whistles.
I spoke to former England footballer and now England Under-21 boss Stuart Pearce. He said: "I learnt how to play football in the non-league game and I fully support the respect barriers to tackle abuse. Without a referee you don't have a game."
Footie experts hope these temporary barriers, which only take a few minutes to set up, will help kids perform better on the pitch and stop loads of adults screaming abuse from the touchline.
