What is respect?
Respect is about valuing people, including people who are like you and those who are different. There are a few ways to look at respect, such as:
- respecting others - knowing that we are all as important as each other and treating other people how we would like to be treated
- respecting ourselves - being able to stick up for ourselves and not letting other people talk us into doing things that feel bad
- respectful relationships - when you hang around with other people and you are doing both the other two kinds of respect! (you respect them and yourself)
Respect and relationships
Most people have lots of relationships in their lives. These might be with:
- their family
- their friends
- their teachers at school
- even the person at the corner shop!
