Building Dreams Students Respond to Respect

Throughout the months of March and April our Building Dreams scholars have been focusing on the value of respect through our partnership with Jack and Jill Magazine. Former NFL Player and Founder, Marlin Jackson, shared his personal story with readers about how he learned to give and get respect in his own life.

Check out some of the answers from our students below!

If your child wants to get involved in our #BuildingDreamsBowl, head on over to this page to read more information, like how they can win an autograph from Marlin Jackson, and be entered to win an NFL Jersey of their choice!

  • What happens when people are treated with respect?
  • Who is the most respectful person you know and why?

When people are treated with respect, they feel good inside. My mom is the most respectful person I know because she respects others, family, people, and God. -Gloria, 9, MA

When people are treated with respect, they feel pride in themselves, knowing that they have done something good to deserve their respect. My best friend Paris is the most respecftul person I know because we look up to each other, are nice to each other, and we don’t just help each other, but more people at school. -Elizabeth, 10, IN

It makes you feel good and you will treat other people with respect. The most respectful person I know is my dad. He is kind because he let’s me cuddle with him when I’m sad. -Kortney, 9, IL

When people are treated with respect it changes them and their outcome to other people, when they pass on the respect. The most respectful person I know is my mom because she is very kind and helpful to other people. Even if it’s a person who she might not get along with, she still treats them with respect. -Chelsea, 10, MN

People who are respeced will, in return, respect you and others. Treat others the way you want to be treated and they will do the same. You are like a mirror, your kindess and/or anger is seen in others around you. The most respectful person I know is Cassie, a girl in one of my classes, because she is always really nice to everyone including me and she always has a friendly smile on her face. She fills everyone with that good feeling: happiness.  She deserves an award for her kindess! -Lucille, 13, TN

When people are treated with respect they are kind to others. The most respectful person I know is my dad because he is kind and helpful. He plays football with me. -Leo, 8, ME
