Respect – Why is it so hard?

It has become really obvious over the last two days that there is still a respect issue in 6SS when it comes to conversations, discussions, debates and arguments. I have seen the following things happen a lot:

  • People interrupt the person that is talking
  • People switch off their minds when certain people speak
  • People laugh even when the person speaking is being serious
  • People are not patient when someone is struggling to explain what they mean
  • People shut eachother down quite rudely

This is not just a 6SS problem. This is a human problem – believe me, teachers and other adults do it too. However, kids are particularly bad at it as they are still learning how to respect other people and what respect actually means.

So, here’s your task. Make a comment to answer all of these questions:

  • What is respect?
  • How do you earn other people’s respect?
  • How do you lose other people’s respect?
  • How do you show someone that you respect them?
  • What does respect look like in a classroom?
  • What does respect look like at home?
  • What is a respectful conversation like?
  • What is a disrespectful conversation like?

    I think respect is when someone treats another person in a good way, doesn’t bully them an encourages them.

    If you want other people to respect you, its also your job to respect them and that is why we have essential agreements to follow them, for example we have one in our class and it is:
    “Treat people the way you want to be treated, with respect.”
    If you are mean to your friend or your classmate for example they are going to treat you how you treat them and if you treat them in a bad way then you will be treated badly.
    To show people that you respect them you have to be kind to them, make sure that they know that you are their friend, and let them know that they can trust you and you make sure that you trust them.

    In the classroom you show respect by letting everyone have a turn to talk, share their ideas, you shouldn’t tease them, no one should gang up to beat a person up or even bully that person, and you should let everyone show their confidence and don’t laugh at the truth. When you are having a conversation anywhere at home, at school, at your cousin’s house, or at your friend’s house you shouldn’t interrupt that person and let everyone have a chance to share their ideas because if you don’t listen to other peoples ideas maybe you are not ever going to complete the task because maybe that person has an idea that could solve the task but people just don’s listen.

    At home you would show respect by playing with your cousin’s, listening to your elderly because your cousin’s are sometimes like guests but just they are close to you, and they know you will, and you should respect your elderly because they do things for you, they earn money for you so we can go to a good school and be educated.

      Hi Sasha,
      I agree with you about…no one should gang up to beat a person up or even bully that person, and you should let everyone show their confidence and don’t laugh at the truth.:)

    Respect is someone who listens with out interrupting while there are sharing ideas. Respect also means taking your partner’s feelings into consideration.

    Respect is the way you value others in the same way you value yourself…their feelings, opinions, and lifestyles. When you become a person who is seen as trustworthy, mature and fair, others will respect you.

    Showing your temper at the least little things can be a real turn off and can make a person wonder whether you are capable of staying in control or if your anger controls you. Bad manners are another way that you can loose your respect towards others.

    The key to showing someone respect, is to show the person you are interacting with that they are valuable. Actions speak louder than words! Eye contact is the best way to show interest.
    5.I feel that respecting Mr. Sam our teacher is the first priority. Being polite, considerate and respecting each other in the classroom is the key to understanding each other’s opinion and feelings.

    At home my parents always repeatedly remind me that to never tell lies because one truth weighs the same as a hundred of them. They also have taught me that respect means you give it and expect it back. This is how you choose good friends and hold your own to strengthen your character. Learn to be responsible for your own actions. Knowing the difference between good and evil because you can get away by your wrong actions or doings and lies from human beings but you cannot escape from almighty GOD.

    Respectful conversation is a very healthy way of discussing and understanding whatever the topic is. It is a way when time is not wasted and we can gain a lot of knowledge by exchanging ideas in a respectful manner.

    Disrespectful conversation is not a good way of discussion because it leads to a lot of arguments and disagreements; this further can lead to a huge misunderstanding or even a fight. For example: disagreement in the government house between the big politicians?

    I think respect has alot of meannings because I think it means that you have to lisson to other people and not hurt their feelings. I think you earn other peoples respect by respecting them E.G if someones nice to me I want to be nice back. You lose peoples respect after you be really mean to them. I think if you lisson or do something nice to someone they will see that you respect them. In a classroom respect is when you lisson to your classmates when there speaking and that you care for them. In a conversation respect is when you lisson to the person whos speaking. In a disrespectful conversation people are all talking at one time and telling other people to shut up.

      March 9, 2010 at 6:09 pm

      Hi Cael,
      I think you spell listen wrong. Watch out for some spelling mistakes.
      But I also like what you said….. “You lose peoples respect after you be really mean to them”.

        March 9, 2010 at 7:20 pm

        You also spelt ‘meanings’ wrong but I agree with Nikki about “You lose people’s respect after you be really mean to them”.
        I’d like to add on a little bit- you usually lose people’s respect when you are rude to them during conversations like some people were to each other today. Sometimes people take other people’s complaints personally and sulk around. Almost always people switch off when they sulk around.

    Everything needs to change through listening. Nobody listens to anyone even if they are right. All of us dont care about each other. In order to maintain the respect that is needed, we need to GET RID OF THE CONVERSATION SYSTEM. It is not working well and if we use the raising hands system, all problems will be solved [Mr. Sam, no offense]. What I believe is we need to stop the system and it will run well both at home and school.

    • 17nikkis

      Hi Ranvir,

      I really disagree with you when you said to get rid of th conversation system. It is a good system and helps with life. People NEED to be able to use the system properly.

      • 17nikkis
        March 9, 2010 at 6:19 pm

        HI Mick,
        I also agree with you. The conversation system is very useful for us all because when we are in secondary we are going to have a conversation like what we having in class.

        • March 9, 2010 at 8:26 pm

          I agree with you both because the conversation system is letting us get used to talking in a conversation maybe we have to improve a lot on it but we are starting to get the idea of how we should talk in a conversation.

          • Mr. Sam
            March 9, 2010 at 9:37 pm

            I totally agree with you guys and totally disagree with Ranvir. The reason you have this conversation problem is because you are so used to teachers solving the problem of who will talk next for you. You have not been trusted to have conversations without putting your hands up. But, this is not how things work in the real world is it? Does your family put their hands up to speak at the dinner table. Do people at parties stand with their hand up waiting for their turn to talk?

            No.

          • Ranvir
            March 10, 2010 at 4:14 pm

            My family doesnt blurt things out either. We have a system. First, Dad talks then Mom talks, then G. Mom talks and finally, it returns to me. We follow this cycle at home and anywhere that we are for dinner.

            Once again with NO OFFENSE, I dont think your statement made sense.

    • Mr. Sam
      March 9, 2010 at 9:40 pm

  5. March 9, 2010 at 5:29 pm

    You earn other peoples respect by being nice or kind to them, listening to what they have to say; just showing that you care would make them feel respected and appreciated. You also earn respect by not breaking the rules. Parents and elders and friends they all trust us to be respectful to everyone, even children who are younger than us. You lose other peoples respects by being a bit rude in what you are trying to say to them or acting silly all the time, well basically what I have said above.

    You show people that you respect them by keeping eye-contact with them while they are speaking, listening to what they have got to share, and not interrupting other people because they might have a really good idea but never get to share it.

    In a classroom respect looks like everyone is soaking in whatever a person has to say and actually listening to them to understand what they are saying. In a classroom students shouldn’t be arguing and making things harder for everyone, it should be an equal discussion where we all accept everyone’s thoughts/opinions/ideas.

    At home respect looks like you treat your siblings really nice even though they are younger than you or even elder than you. Parents want to trust us to do things which are right and when we do something that isn’t really respectful sometimes we feel guilty.

    In a conversation everyone should be listening and soaking in whatever the speaker is trying to say, and after that person has finished talking then you can ask questions. In a conversation also you have to not interrupt others so they lose their concentration on what they are trying to say and some people who are also trying to hear what that person is trying to say will get easily distracted.

    In a disrespectful conversation everyone will be over lapping what they are trying to say and make a huge mess of noise. It is hard to try stay focused when everyone is talking at once. Some people also get offended easily because they aren’t being treated that well.

    I think respect means to be open-minded about people and have empathy for people mainly because most of the problems we have is either about being open-minded or having empathy for someone. I also agree that these problems are issues everywhere and I feel we should grow out of our selves. What I mean is grow knowing about these problems and the strategies to solve them also to know how they start so you don’t do it yourself. To earn respect you need to be humble and responsible not only for your feelings but also for your actions. It is very easy to loose respect but hard to gain it. When people are younger they have full respect of there family but once they loose is they will probably be in many problems.
    To show respect you must be:
    – caring
    – A good person in the inside
    – Have empathy
    – Not a liar
    – Only tells the truth
    – You are comfortable around them
    – You do not I repeat GOSSIP about them
    – You share a part of you with them

    I think that in the class we don’t have as much respect as we have for our friends because in the class all the respect we have is the fact that we are all nice to each other and we don’t care who we get to work with but sometimes people can be really nasty. I also think that our class does not have much respect for each other because today we were treating each other really badly and we were very cruel to each other not only for interrupting each other but also for saying mean words to each other. At home respect to me means that I do not treat my maids as servants I treat them as my friends and also that whenever my parents come home and I’m busy doing something important I will still meet them before I continue. A respectful l conversation is when you don’t be nasty to people and you just try to sort things out nice and calm but the opposite of that is when you shout at your parent or anyone and you say hurtful words to them without thinking. I have seen a disrespectful conversation and trust me the person who says bad things ends up being the worst possible person they get hurt the most as well.

        I like the way you put a type of bullet point so it becomes a bit more eye- catching to read. And I also like the last couple of sentences.

    March 9, 2010 at 6:17 pm

    I think respect is to listen to people and talking kindly. I also think when people listen to people. I think you earn peoples respect by you respecting other people. you lose people from respecting you because you don’t respect other people. I think you show that you respect people bye acting respectfull. For example if you listen to people carfuly and try to understand and don’t inturupt. I think an respect in class look really calm and really clear what they are saying. I also think everyone will belive each other and I think they will think that maybe that person does have the right solution for something instead of just thinking that that person is saying a complete rubish and you just start inturupting. I also think they will be people beliving at home too. People will have a conversation even if they didn’t have to and even if noone said to. I think respectfull conversations are really easy to understand and really intresting. People would be listening to people and actually thinking about the words that the person said. But if it was a disrespectfull conversation NO ONE will want to lisen, noone will think about the things people says and some times they will stop thinking. Its the complete oposite of a respectfull conversation. 😛 🙂

    Respect means someone who has rights and privileges for something. To earn other peoples respect you must respect someone else to earn your respect.You lose other people’s respect by not treating them good or doing something that they don’t like. A respectful conversation is where people listen to when a person is speaking have everyone must be quiet and be listening. A disrespectful conversation is when there is multiple people talking and other people can’t hear u so you have to talk louder than normal and higher and higher, also when some people just don’t listen to you.

    • Mick
      March 9, 2010 at 6:25 pm

  9. Samantha
    March 9, 2010 at 6:21 pm

    I think respect is being kind to each other, being open-minded and trying to understand someone else. I think that you earn other peoples respect by always listening to the other person and carefully considering their own views. You loose peoples respect by failing to be considerate, talking over them and not listening to their opinions. Another way to loose peoples respect is by first being respectful to them and giving the impression that you have considered their opinion and later just ignoring them, this is a hurtful behaviour. I think you show someone that you respect them by always being respectful to them, understanding them and being their friend.Respect in the classroom looks like every body listening to the person who is talking and people being cooporative to the group/person so that everybodys views are considered. Respect at home looks like a cooporative and happy family, everybody is listening and not interupting while someone else is talking and doesn’t just jump into a different subject or say something when someone has already said, it’s about giving everybody a chance. A disrespectful convertsation would be people shouting, inturrepting each other and people who aren’t even listening. Rude behaviour will always end up being disrespectful!

      You are right, it really is about “giving everybody a chance”. Giving people a chance to speak, a chance to be themselves, a chance to express themselves, a chance to try their best, a chance to make mistakes, a chance to find out for themselves. The list could go on and on!

      Mr. Sam

  10. 17mikit
    March 9, 2010 at 6:46 pm

    I think “respect” is someone speak (share) the idea and someone listening that idea and they(who listening idea) understand and some people add more.

    I think if I respect someone, and if people that I respect think I am good, then people respect me(this is my image!!)

    I think if I doing bad things to people, then they think I am bad person and they lose respect for me.

    I think you show that you respect people by doing respectfull. For example when someone sharing idea, and I listen carefuly and try to understand it. And also say your impressions.

    I think it looks like very open – minded and very positive.

    I think it looks like very open – mineded and also looks like happy.

    I think respectful Conversation is everyone share them idea and everyone asking or answering.

    I think disrespectful conversation is someone share idea, but after that only same people and other people don’t share the idea.

    I think respect is that you care about someone, you should listen to people’s ideas, you should not say “you are so fat” because that would be rude and basically respect is the opposite of being rude. I also think that a part of respect is caring and empathy because you should be kind to them and you should think about how would I feel if they did that to me which is empathy.
    You earn other people’s respect by being kind to them like protecting them from a bully or if they fall and get hurt run and check if they are ok, if you are older people admire you and then respect you if they are younger and sometimes they respect people because that person is a bully and he/she doesn’t want to get hurt.
    If you are rude, hurt someone, hurt someone’s feelings, spread someone’s personal secret or do anyone of those things to one of their friends or family then they don’t respect you anymore because you don’t respect them and you will lose their trust.
    To show someone you respect them you care about someone, you should listen to people’s ideas, you should not say “you are so fat” because that would be rude and basically respect is the opposite of being rude. I also think that a part of respect is caring and empathy because you should be kind to them and you should think about how would I feel if they did that to me which is empathy.
    What respect looks like in a classroom is that people listen to other people ideas without interrupting or laughing and people caring about each other like if someone gets injured.
    Basically every thing I said before except you don’t be violent and you don’t swear at people.
    People listening to each others ideas, no passengers, not laughing at people’s thoughts and ideas and people not shouting at each other or fighting.
    A disrespectful conversations is people laughing at other people’s ideas and thoughts, disturbing each other and people fighting and shouting and being a passenger.

    • Respect is basically caring if you are caring about someone you are caring about someone
    • You earn other peoples respect by talking to them introducing them to you friends or just being plain old nice.
    • You loose someone’s respect by being mean or annoying.
    • Respect in the classroom is like heaven we are sharing a lot of ideas having nice conversations and working together with no passengers.
    • Respect at home is like a nice dinner at the dinner table and telling your mom you finished you homework so they are pleased with you.
    • A respectful conversation is where when one person is talking the rest are listing and were there are no interruptions.
    • A disrespectful conversation is were every one is interrupting each other and there not listing to the person who is talking.

    Have you ever heard the proverb “Treat others the way you want to be treated”? This is the key to respect since everyone wants to be equal or more powerful than others in terms of what they want to do.

    Many people don’t want to be interrupted, bullied or treated badly in other ways since it makes them feel low and useless in themselves. People who are bullied are mostly shy and not confident in themselves since people would interrupt or boo at them for making mistakes and it is ok to make mistakes because in a PYP school like NIST, we encourage people to take risks and go further and take more steps in their life.

    Many are not respected because of their infamous actions to others and as a result, people are not satisfied with their actions and the people who don’t get to have a bad reputation of being rude and the thing that makes them usually comes from their family and that also tells us that they have a good time in their houses and that type of things involved in the family.

    The way that some people show respect is by listening to their ideas and not interrupting, being good to them not only in front of them but also behind their backs. Many people seem to be good in front of the teacher and become mischievous when the teacher turns his back and gives you trust and you spoil it by playing and doing useless things.

    In a classroom situation like a conversation, everybody is listening to one another and not interrupting just listening and interpreting in your mind and using your “filter” to think about those things. Sometimes you want to jump and shout out that I disagree with you but in cases that people are given numbers, you should say “Oh I want to add on to ………” since that is going to be like clicking on the reply button on the blog and it is more polite than just saying and shouting ideas out.

    Home respectfulness is just doing your chores, making sure that you do the right thing without being told and also not shouting back at your parents because it is disrespectful in my house’s religion. It is also not acceptable to hurt your parents by any way.

    I think respect is where you show people how much you care for them. You earn other peoples respect by caring for them not inturrupting them and treat them the way you don’t want to be treated. You lose other people’s respect by treating the the way you don’t want to be treated and constantly inturrupting them. To show someone that you respect them is make sure you don’t inturrupt them and don’t make them feel ignored. Respect in a classroom looks like people not talking all at once, taking turns to talk and people listening to ideas and taking the idea to add on not just ok you said what you wanted to say it’s my turn. Respect in a house looks like people sharing, not shouting at each other and taking turns to do things. A respectful conversations look like people taking turns to talk and listening to what people are saying. A disrespectful conversations looks like people inturrupting each other don’t care what people say and swearing at each other and also blaming each other for inturrupting them!

    March 9, 2010 at 8:14 pm

    Before I talk about respect I want to talk about the task we did at school. The way we can solve it is to respect each other. We can get the answer to the task easily. We just need to listen. I think we need 1 PLAN!!!! Everybody needs to help each other. The hard part of the task is that we need everyone! We really need everyone.

    Respecting is being nice to people. It is treaty them nicely. Don’t interuppt, don’t hurt them and just treat them like everyone wants to be treated.

    You earn other people’s respect by simply respecting them. It is like the saying you get what you give

    You lose respect by being mean. By not respecting others. You respect by interrupting and annoying people too.

    You show someone by respecting them and giving them honour. You can’t just shout at them or interrupt them and not say sorry. You have to give them honour.

    Respect in the classrom and at home or at any place is same. It is no interrupting and being nice.

    A respective conversation is a conversation without interruption and nasty comments. Everybody taking part in the conversations.

    Like Sasha said,” if you want to be respected, then it’s your job to respect others, like what the essential agreements say, “Treat people the way you want to be treated, with respect.”
    RESPECT is when you care about what people think their opinions, thoughts and ideas. You earn respect by respecting other people because when you respect other people, they will think that you are a very good person with ideas so when you try to share something, they will help you, by listening to you. You lose respect by not listening to people because when you don’t listen and you try to talk/ share and it gets very noisy and when another person wants to say something then they would just shout over each other so no one would listen to each other and you lose respect.
    When someone is speaking I show them respect by looking at them/ having eye contact with them so that they know that you are listening to them. We let everybody have a chance to speak/ share, we don’t tease people for what they say even if it is wrong. We also shouldn’t interrupt people while they are talking or what so ever. We shouldn’t do these things because firstly, it would make the person who is talking feel sad. Secondly, they won’t feel confident and they won’t share ideas even though their ideas can be the idea that can help us do things. And finally, it is just not RESPECTFUL to the person. Most of the things listed above are what respect should look like in the classroom, so I don’t think I will need to write them again. Respect at home is you don’t say bad things about the ideas especially to your elders because it is not respectful and try and not argue with other family member’s ideas. What I said about respect at home is what I do at home, so if you don’t agree it’s OK. It’s not like a government law it’s just a rule I have a home.
    A respectful conversation is when someone is talking you don’t interrupt, you just don’t turn the switch in your head of just because you can’t speak at the moment. You don’t laugh at what people say because it could be serious. You don’t just tell someone to shut-up just because you are going to talk or going to talk. A disrespectful conversation is when People interrupt the person that is talking,
    People switch off their minds when certain people speak, People laugh even when the person speaking is being serious and people just tell another person to shut-up so they can speak

      I like the way you added on to another persons sentence. It means you really are concentrating and trying to write everything down about what you think respectful and disrespectful means anywhere you are.

    Respect is when a person cares about others and has a polite behaviour. Today in class, it was a hard time communicating to each other, everyone was talking and sharing ideas. But we had everybody talking and not being that respectfull to the people around everybody. A class should be sharing ideas one by one and also listening and trying it. It’s nearly like a sponge you get ideas and you can squeese some out but rethink first. Today and yesterday was a little bit like a disrespectful conversation. Because people were talking the same time, not listening to each other, say a mean thing like to be quiet in a mean and disrespectful way. So it should actually be like a polite open minded coversation like discussing it one by one, being nice, giving and sharing ideas and mostly carry on the topic and what he or she is saying. At home when people are be and are respected they will have a good time and happy life because everybody enjoys it. For example, I leave my clothes all around my room it’s not respecting the people who cleans it so I should be organized in what I do so I show respect to others who cleans it up.

    You earn respect by being respectfull to others. Then other people will show their respect to you. I think it’s like “You give and you get”. Well, you lose respect by interupputing them and not being respectfull. Not only the person your not respectfull with but also others because they can be seeing it or people tell them. It kind gives a bad reputation.

    You can show respect to others by just listening and communicating one by one and sharing ideas politly and not saying mean things to say. Maybe, if someone is being mean aand disrespectfull you shiuld just go up to them respectfully and tell them how you feel in a nice way.
