Respect for Others

Respect for others means sharing, helping, loving and caring. Children should show respect for adults. Respectful people are happy, patient, and fun to be with.

Some people are kind; they always pray for other people. They always visit other people. All people have to love one another. Some do hard work, listen to others and give thanks when you help them. They help others do a lot of things like wash the dishes, clean, sweep and mop the floor.End Article

Respecting other people is important. Especially back in the old days, everyone respected another. The Elders would sew parkas and mukluks and cook. The adults would hunt and do hard work. They helped one another with respect.

But now, I don’t see much respect.

People still respect one another but in some places there is no respect at all. Sometimes people really hurt other’s feelings or really beat someone up. I’m glad there’s still some respect and let us hope it continues.End Article
