Teach the Children Well (Part 7)

How do you teach children the lessons of “The Golden Rule”?

At around four or five years old, children can conceptualize and vocalize about being treated fairly or unfairly.

Deliberately treat “Little Johnny” fairly and ask him how it felt to be treated fairly.  Ask him if he would like for his sister, brother, cousin, friend to be treated fairly.  Ask him if he will treat them fairly.  Ask him why.  His response should make for an interesting conversation.

Deliberately treat “Little Susie” unfairly and ask her how it felt to be treated unfairly.  Ask her if she would like for her sister, brother, cousin, friend to be treated unfairly.  Ask her if she will treat them unfairly.  Ask her why.  Her response should make for an interesting conversation.

Continue with these lessons on a regular basis.
