Being RESPECTFUL means you treat others with courtesy and consideration. It means you show regard for another person or thing
You can show your RESPECT or DISRESPECT for someone through verbal/non-verbal cues.
- Verbal cues could be the way in which you say things. For example: yelling, talking back to an adult, blurting out in class, and talking to other students while the teacher is talking.
- Examples of non-verbal cues could be: your facial expressions, rolling your eyes, negative body language which displays a negative attitude, walking around the classroom without permission, walking away from an adult, and not making eye contact.
Why should you practice RESPECT?
“Courtesy costs nothing.”
- Respect can be practiced by thinking about how you would like others to treat you and treating them with the same dignity and respect.
