Respect - Tamanna Solanki
Respect is the most recurring human value among all other human values. It is of two types: self-respect (self-esteem) and respect for others. I think we all learn it by experience. It can't be inherent, but it is learned very early in life through various experiences. It is as simple as acknowledging the presence of the other being. Mere recognizing and accepting the point of view of the other person and giving him or her due consideration is showing respect. We can be respectful of anyone's deeds, opinions, rights, dignity, decisions, likes or dislikes, etc.
Before learning how to respect others, I, rather, naturally go through a journey to recognize how it feels to be respected. I simply feel respected when my parents listen to me, when they ask my opinion on trivial family matters, when my mentors acknowledge my curiosity, doubts and responses. I feel respected when my friends consider my opinion and collaborate and cooperate with me now and then. And all these things taught me to be respectful to others irrespective of their age. This develops self-esteem, which also gives us confidence and courage and a very positive feeling.
Most of the time, when we respect others, we are likely to get it back. But, I feel we can never be certain that giving respect ensures getting respect. As the saying goes, "Respect is not demanded; it is commanded". So, for commanding respect, we need to become worthy of others' respect. Since we are living in a society, respect for others is a must value to inculcate. And this can be done only when we respect ourselves first.
In the end, I would like to say that respect is a vital human value that is necessary for adapting to social behaviour and, therefore human survival.
The future of education will be built on immutable values alone: A ppreciation, Caring, Co-operation, Courage, Freedom, Friendship, Happiness, Honesty, Hope, Humility, Love, Patience, Peace, Quality, Respect, Responsibility, Simplicity, Thoughtfulness, Tolerance, Trust, Understanding & Unity. Joy Of Learning (JOL) will inspire you by using examples of where the values are already being used by children in schools and share practical tools to stimulate discussion and philosophical debate. JOL is an extensive and profound learning experience that immerses members in a model of inquiry and problem-based learning. Students work collaboratively to gain knowledge to solve their significant challenges, we champion peer-to-peer learning. #JoyOfLearning "We live in a society consumed by materialism and the desire for more. Does this mean our next generation of children will grow up being literate and numerate greedy consumers whose lives are judged by their houses' size and the
Night Camp at School Happiness is an emotional state characterized by feelings of joy, satisfaction, contentment and fulfilment. While happiness has many different definitions, it is often described as involving positive emotions and life satisfaction. But there are also some people for whom happiness is talking about how they feel in the present moment, or they might be referring to a more general sense of how they feel about life overall. For me, happiness is the moment when I talk to my friends about various topics. The amount of happiness I get from here is uncountable and indescribable. Talking with friends is the most amazing experience in the world, which never ends. We can't talk with family or relatives or anyone else for more than a limit. But with friends, there is no limit to talk. Every thought from our mind comes to our mouth when we are with friends. Like, we can talk about our personal life, family life, social life, and anything; we can talk. I would lik
