respect others and themselves

Reading time: 7 minutes

Suitable for: Families with children of all ages

Respect means thinking about the feelings, wishes, or rights of another person. Perhaps you’ve heard the phrase, “treat others as you want to be treated”? When we show respect for someone, we don’t have to agree with them, or even like them, but we can still behave politely towards them.

So how can you teach your child to respect other people and have respect for themselves?

Respect starts with recognising differences

We’re all different. We have our own likes and beliefs, hobbies and personalities, and we look and sound differently to each other. Some of these differences are protected by the Equality Act to make sure we’re all treated fairly in society.
