Be a Kind and Caring Kid!
A Kind and Caring Kid is someone who treats others the way he or she wants to be treated.
Each child is a special person, with talents, abilities, and characteristics. It is important for children to know that they have value and worth and that they deserve respect from others---just as they give respect to others. Healthy self-esteem is different from haughtiness, self-centeredness, and conceit.
Tolerance is accepting the differences in others. This is a two-fold process:
- Recognize the differences in others.
- Respect the differences in others.
Intolerance often leads to conflict, bullying, and violence!!
Tolerance is a behavior that should be modeled by all parents, instructors, and other adults, so that children will learn this easily. Everyone should be Kind and Caring!
