A person of character is respectful. Respect means treating others the way you want to be treated by being courteous and polite to others. It involves recognizing that every individual is valuable and entitled to be treated with respect, regardless of race, religion, gender, or physical abilities. Some traits include:

  • Listen to others

  • Play fair

  • Use good manners

  • Wait your turn

  • Pick up after yourself

  • How you treat others (The Golden Rule)
