Character Trait for December 2013: Respect


This is a short month as far as school goes, but we still want to highlight our Character trait for December, which is Respect:

Showing high regard, value and appreciation for authority, others, self and property. 

One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say.

~Bryant H. McGill 

I speak to everyone in the same way, whether he is the garbage man or the president of the university.

~ Albert Einstein

Remember not only to say the right thing in the right place, but far more difficult still, to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment.

~ Benjamin Franklin 

Think for yourselves and let others enjoy the privilege to do so too.

~ Voltaire (1694-1778); Philosopher, Essayist

As we learn about the various world religions in history, we are likely to find many teachable moments to model and encourage respect for others. If you have something to share about nurturing respect in our children, please leave a comment below.
