What is Respect?
Respect, thinking, and acting positively about others and ourselves (self-respect) means caring about how our actions impact others, being inclusive, and accepting others for who they are, even when they are different. Respect starts with confidence and is linked with empathy, compassion, integrity, and honesty.
Did You Know? The best way to teach children respect is to act respectfully towards them and others. Active listening and empathy are key in fostering and expressing respect.
