Children First 
Respect Week

During the first week of October, we celebrate Respect Week here at Bowser Elementary.  However, our goal of a respectful, safe, prosperous environment for your children and the entire school community is ongoing. I’d like to provide you with this helpful resource on how to continue to support this goal.

 

As a mother, and as a counselor for your children, I know that raising and educating our kids is the most important job. It can be so challenging but we are here to help. Continue in this demanding yet rewarding task!!!                                                        

 

Sincerely,

TEACHING R-E-S-P-E-C-T

(1) Model it: If you want them to do it, you have to do it too.

(2) Expect it: When your expectations are reasonably high, children rise to the occasion.

(3) Teach it: Give children the tools they need to show you respect. Your Powerful Words Family School, can assist you with the lessons.

(4) Praise it: When you see or hear your children using respectful language and making respectful choices, recognize it and praise them for making positive, respectful decisions.

(5) Discuss it: Pick out times when you see other children using respectful or disrespectful language or behavior and discuss with it your children.

(6) Correct it: Be strong, firm and direct when teaching respect. At the same time, be sure you are being respectful yourself while correcting the behavior.

(7) Acknowledge it: Don’t just let things slide! Be sure to notice when respectful behavior is being exhibited and make sure to call them on disrespectful behavior!

(8) Understand it: Your children are growing and learning. Sometimes word choice and behavioral decisions are made because they do not have the correct words or behavior to relay “I’m tired,” “I’m frustrated,” or “I’m angry.”

(9) Reinforce it: Remind children of their good decisions so that they remember how it felt, the praise they received, and the overall experience of being respectful.

(10) Reward it: Respectful behavior should be something that children want to do without overindulgent rewards. However, it is good to associate respectful behavior with intangible rewards such as praise, recognition, extra responsibility, and privileges.

Teaching respect takes patience, time, and a willingness to do as you preach. Time isn’t everything though, is it? It takes years to rear a respectful child and only moments to fill one with anger and disrespect.

Semana de Respeto

Durante la primera semana de Octubre, aquí en la escuela de Bowser celebramos la semana de Respeto.  Aunque, nuestra meta es tener un ambiente de prosperidad donde sus hijos se sientan sanos y salvos. Queremos que así sea para toda la comunidad escolar. Quiero proveerle con el recurso debajo para ayudarlos a alcanzar esa meta.

 

Como madre y consejera escolar, yo sostengo la noción que criar y educar a nuestros hijos es un trabajo extremadamente importante. Es también un trabajo difícil pero gratificante. Continúen!!!                                               

 

Sinceramente,

ENSENADO R-E-S-P-E-T-O

(1) Modélelo: Si usted quiere que su hijo lo haga, debe ejemplificarlo.

(2) Tenga la expectativa: Espere respeto de sus hijos.

(3) Ensénelo: Dele a sus hijos herramientas para que puedan aprender a respetar. Aquí en, Powerful Words Family School, hay lecciones.

(4) Alábelo (cuando vea sus hijos ser respetuosos): Cuando sus hijos escojan ser respetuosos alábelo, cuando lo oigan usar buen lenguaje, o hacer decisiones positivas y respetuosas.

(5) Discuta sobre el respeto en casa: ensene y discuta el vocabulario apropiado.

(6) Corríjalo: Sea fuerte y disciplinado con su expectativa y corrija cuando debido siempre modelando el comportamiento adecuado.

(7) Reconózcalo: Si ve que su hijo/hija esta faltando el respeto llámele la atención.

(8) Entienda a sus hijos: Hay veces que los niños se sienten cansados o frustrados, y como padres creemos que los niños están siendo desobediente. La verdad puede ser simplemente que los pequeños están cansados. Debemos ser razonables y entender a nuestros hijos.

(9) Reforzarlo: Refuerzo, refuerzo, refuerzo… No empiece el proceso nada mas, hay que ser consistente.

(10) Recompénselo: Puede dar privilegios, recompense verbal, o premios cuando usted observe su niño ser respetuoso.

Tenga paciencia al ensenar respeto con sus hijos y con usted mismo.
