G6 - Respectfulness
This week, we're focusing on RESPECTFULNESS!
RESPECTFULNESS is treating others the way I would want to be treated. The opposite of RESPECTFULNESS is RUDENESS, offending others with behavior that shows that I do not care about them.
Respect is the heart of all good character:
- Seeing circumstances from the perspective of another person.
- Placing other people's needs and feelings above my own.
Rudeness is really nothing more than self-centeredness:
- Not seeing or not caring about another person's perspective.
- Placing my needs and feelings above other people's.
How can we help kids consider the needs and feelings of other people? Share your ideas in the comments.
