PeaceBuilders Principle of the Month
As a PeaceBuilding™ site, we practice the principles of PeaceBuilding. The last of the six principles is Helping Others. Helping others can be practiced in many ways. Teaching children responsibility through the practice of helping others is a life-long lesson that will prepare them for adulthood. Children are encouraged to help their friends and acquaintances when they are in need of help. This can include helping another child with an assignment or project. Helping others provides children with the satisfaction of a job well done. They experience helping both as helpers, and as ones who receive help. Experiencing both sides of this situation provides children with a greater appreciation for how powerful helping can be to building peace.
Children are encouraged to help others in many ways:
- By offering to help others. This includes helping a friend with a homework assignment, or helping a new kid become familiar with the site and make new friends.
- By including other kids in games and activities so that they feel welcome and accepted.
- By helping out the neighborhood. This includes picking up litter and cleaning up public places for everyone to enjoy.
- By helping out those in need. This includes helping elderly people with jobs, or participating in a canned food drive to help less fortunate people. How can you help?
- By encouraging children to help others in their daily lives. This includes thoughtful acts of kindness both large and small. Each of these is a step in the direction of creating a peaceful environment in which to live.
