How to Be Considerate

“Being considerate of others will take you and your children further in life than any college or professional degree.” – Marian Wright Edelman
To be truly considerate, you have to know how to put yourself in someone else’s shoes.
I believe that teaching your children from a young age to be considerate will create a better society and will make them better human beings. When we are considerate to one another we create a good example to our kids’ friends and family.
being considerate can help us be aware of the people around us while still asserting our needs.
Putting ourselves in someone else’s shoes can help us understand their needs and feelings. We would like others to consider us and our feelings, so we should do the same.

Be mindful to the fact that there are other people on this planet besides you. Make sure not to hurt others feelings. Be consensus to other people time. When you are being late to a meeting, call and make sure to notice that you will be late. Don’t be late for more than 10-15 minutes. It’s rude to assume that others can wait for you an hour or 2 and that their time is not valuable.

Think about what you are saying, words can hurt others. Words create worlds use them wisely.
React in a sensitive way, when someone says something offensive, probably he reacts to something you said. Take a moment before you say anything.

Be considerate to your environment. This is the only planet we have and we need to cherish it.
We are not the only animal that uses this planet. It belongs to all species. The fact that we have more power than others, puts the responsibility in our hands.
Live and let live, everyone has the right to their own opinion, don’t force your thoughts on others.
Creating a sensitive and Considerate environment will create a better world for us, for our family and for everyone.
