Respect, October 19

We will be discussing Respect together in our lessons during this week.  Specifically, we will talk about the opposite of Respect — what it means to behave disrespectfully.  Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:

“You get treated in life the way you teach people to treat you.”  — Wayne Dyer (author)

The opposite of respect is disrespect.  Disrespect is when a person doesn’t have any regard for themselves, or for the people around them.  A disrespectful person may act inappropriately and cause a scene, say something deliberately intended to hurt or demean another person, or take or destroy other people’s property.  Treating other people disrespectfully can cause them to lose their respect for you.

Discussion Questions:

  1.  Do you think it is disrespectful when one of your parents asks you to do something, and you don’t do it?
  2. When you are at school, or in your karate lesson, do you think it is disrespectful when someone doesn’t listen to your teacher or instructor?
  3. What is another example of disrespectful behavior?

Please share your answers to these questions, and your thoughts about Respect, with our school community by using the form below.
