You probably know 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. Respect means thinking about the feelings, wishes, and rights of another person.
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.
