Teaching RESPECT to our children is an important task.Have you ever thought about what a child thinks about if you say to them; "Be Respectful"? I'm a firm believer that we need to teach our children through role modeling, discussions, visuals and books to teach on any topic. Today's topis is being respectful to yourself and others. What does the word respect mean? This is what the dictionary says:
noun: respect; plural noun: respects
verb: respect; 3rd person present: respects; past tense: respected; past participle: respected; gerund or present participle: respecting
admire (someone or something) deeply, as a result of their abilities, qualities, or achievements.
"she was respected by everyone she worked with"
Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn. Benjamin Franklin
A few years ago a young lady named Shelby Hill from Roy Utah reached out to me to see if she could use our Respectful Rabbit as her platform while she ran for Miss Utah. Needless to say, the answer was 'yes'! Shelby did run for Miss Roy Utah and won, then she ran for Miss Utah and did not earn that title, however, she went on to a bigger platform, she was a missionary doing wonderful things for others and sharing her faith with God's word as well. Shortly after that she married and now is a mommy to a beautiful little boy. We at Characters of Character have high regards and bundles of respect for this young lady. Who do you have respect for? How do you teach your child to be respectful? Respectful Rabbit does have a few tips, click here to read them.
