Respect

We are learning at school about the importance of treating others with respect even if we sometimes do not agree with the way they behave or the things they say. We have also been thinking about how we should treat the things that belong to us and to other people respectfully.
• Think of some practical ways that you show respect to each other in your family.
• Often we show respect to someone by the way we speak to them.  What does this mean in practice?
• Do you treat one another’s possessions with respect? What does this mean in practice?

Forgiveness

“Without forgiveness there is no future…. If you can forgive, then you can move on and even help the person you are forgiving to become a better person”
Desmond Tutu

Thought of the Day

Forgiveness

Everyone makes mistakes, it’s part of being human. Sometimes our mistakes hurt others and then we need to say sorry. Sometimes mistakes made by other people hurt us. When this happens we need to be able to forgive.  Forgiveness can be difficult and costly but without it a new start is impossible.
Talk together about:
• A time when you needed to say sorry
• A time you didn’t say sorry but wish you had
• A time when you had to forgive someone who had hurt or upset you
• How it feels when you are given a new start because someone has forgiven you
