Our Target: We need to let our kids know that watching the way we talk, work, and share is how other people decide how they are going to treat us. Let’s teach our kids to treat others with respect so that our kids can be respected by others, too.
Team Up! Try these simple ideas to help your child want to talk.
Just ask your child to tell you what they think respect means in their own words. Give them time to think about it and give it a try. Then, let them know that you can respect people’s things, you can respect people’s wants by sharing, and you can respect the way people listen to you by using kind and gentle words.
