Caring “I am caring to others.”
We develop empathy, compassion, and respect towards the needs and feelings of others. We have a personal commitment to service, and act to make a positive difference to the lives of others and to the environment.
Activities for parents
- Role model the caring behavior you would like to see in your child all the time. Your child has big eyes and big ears and notices everything you do. Using kind words, helping people without being asked, being an active listener, all show your child that you care about people. Even a simple thing, like holding the door for someone, shows your child that you are aware of others and want to help them.
- After reading a book, spend some time considering how the people in the book acted. Was someone caring? All of the time or just some of the time? Were all of the characters in the book caring or just some of them?
