But first...what is the definition of respect?

Respect means showing others that they are valued for who they are, for their character, not what they look like or what they have. It means treating others the way you want to be treated, never insulting or making fun of others who are different in appearance, ability, race or religion. A respectful person is polite, does not use hurtful language and never uses violence.

Respect Dos

  • Treat everyone with respect by being courteous and polite.
  • Respect the independence and individuality of others. Taking into account the age and maturity of a person, respect his/her right to develop decision-making competence.
  • Be tolerant and appreciative of individual differences.
  • Judge people on their merits, not on their race, religion, nationality, gender, physical or mental conditions, or social and economical status.

Respect Don’ts

  • Don’t insult, abuse, demean, mistreat or harass others.
  • Don’t make inappropriate or unwanted comments about a person’s race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
  • Don’t manipulate or take advantage of others.
