Do you respect each other?
Treating each with respect seems to a downfall over the years
Respect starts at home I don’t think a child could learn of respect on the street.
It is entirely up to parents to make the discipline of respect part of their children’s lives
What has changed?
Most families lack respect for each other, their busy lifestyles have taken over their lives, in this way communication doesn’t exist in these families leading to disrespectful families. You think your family is a perfect one, but if you take the time and focus on the little issues at home, you will notice respecting each other has somehow disappeared
If you don’t communicate with your children on a daily basis how would you gain respect for each other?
Often there is no respect because parents don’t have the time for their children and everybody else in the family follow their own paths which they feel is comfortable for them. If parents don’t play their part in their children’s lives how will respect be gained?
Treating one with respect makes you feel good and a better person too. Be it at home or in public, why only do it at home, you can also respect others in public.
Respect each other in the following ways
Don’t make fun of others, or laugh at them it is being disrespectful
Pay attention to conversation when talking to each other, don’t deviate from your moment of conversation
Value other people’s opinions
Don’t speak of others when they are not with you
Be sensitive to other people’s feelings
Avoid pressuring anyone to do something they don’t want to do
Respect other people’s wishes
The different cultures, languages, and kinds of people that you work with or come across daily when on the street have different backgrounds and are taught differently. You should respect this about them. Everyone is different in a unique way.
Instead learn something from the other
Don’t stereotype people
Show appreciation fro other people’s cultures
Avoid getting into racist and prejudice attitudes.
Have an understanding of the importance of respectful behaviour
Depending on the kind of people you encounter daily, try to avoid being rude, sometimes certain people don’t care about respecting another, it doesn’t mean you should be the same.
Your first social skill should be proactive listening
Show consideration, act accordingly after listening to the conversation, give a hint to how they are feeling, don’t just walk away from the conversation without interest.
Promises shouldn’t be broken, keep your word to someone, this will make you feel of value to them, a person who keeps promises is someone of integrity.
Be punctual, never be late, treat them with value
Don’t interrupt conversations, , be polite, don’t forget your PLEASE, THANK YOU, and EXCUSE ME
Encouraging can be empowering and liberating
Be fair, avoid corruption it will be appreciated if you gave people what they need, and deserve.
Go out of your way go the extra mile without being rewarded, show them the importance of your friendship
Preserve dignity, approach people in a a way to preserve their dignity, if mistreated or upset. Speak calmly
Do Not Assume, don’t do this, instead you should start off each interaction by thinking of the other as your equal.
When standing in queues don’t push and complain it is part of what one has to accept but, not everyone is the same.
People react differently
