The ROAR Show is committed to helping children understand respect and responsibility by helping them build self-esteem and strong character. Parents need help, too. The following article contains wonderful advice to help your children who may fall prey to being bullied.
Bullying can make daily life extremely difficult for children and can even affect them for their whole lives. Here is a guide on what to do if you think your child may be bullied:
The respect school assembly program is back on the road. The ROAR Show will be visiting elementary schools in Michigan between September 25th and October 3rd, 2011.
Parents, school principals and teachers in the cities of Deckerville, Carsonville, Waterford, Livonia, Fair Haven, Marine City, Hartford, Holland and Thompsonville know the importance of their children being respectful, responsible, ready and safe. They're inviting Al The Respect Guy to bring the message of "ROAR - Respect Others and Act Responsibly" to their communities.
"I’m looking forward to talking to the students," said Al.

“I’m Michelle B. from Meridian Elementary in Grosse Ile (Michigan). The ROAR Show brought being respectful, responsible, and being safe to light for our students here at Grosse Ile and we really loved it. The students were engaged, they participated and they sat and listened wonderfully. Thanks Al!”

I had two quick things to pick up at the grocery store. There was only one gentleman in line before me. He only had five items. When it came time to pay for his purchase, he swiped his credit card and it was declined. The clerk suggested that he try to swipe his card a second time. Again it didn’t work. He swore he had plenty of credit. The customer then tried to call his card company to find out what was wrong. The clerk was very patient, but by this time there were three more costumers who got in line behind me. After not being able to reach the credit card company quickly the customer used another credit card to complete his purchase. What should have taken me a few minutes to run into the store, make my purchase and leave, now seemed like an eternity. What happened next surprised me and impressed me beyond measure. As the gentleman pick up his bag of groceries he turned to all of us behind him and apologized for the delay and any inconvenience he may have caused us! Was he being respectful by apologizing or just using common courtesy? He is what I call a true gentleman. He really brought home the message of The ROAR Show, which is Respect Others and Act Responsibly.
Someone once said that a little respect goes a long way. I believe that self respect goes with you a lifetime.
How do you teach elementary level school children the importance of self respect? There are several, examples discussed and shared in The ROAR Show School Assembly Program.

Friendships begin with similar interests, out of respect and sometimes need. I found this article in the June 26th, 2011 issue of Parade Magazine about most unusual friendships called "Best Friends Forever" by Joanne Kaufman. Ms. Kaufman writes about conservation biologist Jennifer Holland and her book Unlikely Friendships. Ms. Holland writes about extraordinary bonds between animals of different species. To see more photos of unusual best friends in the animal kingdom go to www.Parade.com/aminals. I think you'll like it.
