Being Bigger means you treat others how you want to be treated, even when they haven't been that kind to you."
-Talking with Trees Books
When someone has been mean, it can be hard to treat them with respect. But our greatest peace keepers have taught us to be the bigger person, even when it seems unfair. This respect quote, drawn from the book, Be Bigger, teaches kids that being unkind in response to unkindness doesn't get you want you really want. Instead, by showing respect in response to someone else's disrespect, we set an example of how we would like to be treated. We come out as the bigger person with better character and maturity.
Teaching kids about treating others kindly? Try Be Bigger, a good book for kids that teaches children how to be respectful, even when their feelings are hurt. When a girl's friend is mean to her, all she can think to do is get even. That is, until a wise old tree steps in and shows her another way.
