These are all simple ways for you to explain this to a child in a way that they can understand. Let’s all work on teaching our children what it means to treat others the way that you want to be treated. In our society today children are not motivated to do anything other than sit in front of a television, play video games, tweet or text on their phones. I remember as a child that we were outside ninety percent of the time playing and getting exercise. I think that we need to go back to those days when we didn’t have all of the technology that we have today. I know that children are learning a lot of their behavior from these other sources as well as not being taught. I think that if they are out in the community where they have to socialize with others and interact with everyone else in their community then they will be able to see that we are all different and that we can all help one another when it is needed. This will help them to learn how to treat others and to show some compassion as well as learn how they want others to treat them.
