JONATHON: Hi mums and dads. Jonathon Hourigan here from Black Belt Plus in Burleigh, and I wanted to continue with our life skill of respect. Now I’ve got a really great home project for you, and the important thing about that is that people who have respect appreciate others, and that’s what we’re trying to teach with this little project.
So what we’re going to do is I want you to get your child to write a thank you card to someone they appreciate. Now this project is meant to teach your kids how to show appreciation for others, which is an important way to teach them or to demonstrate respect. And when you take the time to thank others, it really makes them feel good.teaching child respect
So remind your child about the golden rule, treat others the way you want to be treated. And if your child can master this golden rule, they’ll have more success in life. In our martial arts school, one way we build respect is by nurturing our respectful environment on our training mats. Then our students naturally become more respectful, and they carry that over to other aspects of their life. Thanks for watching, and I’ll catch you soon. Bye. teaching child respect
