Be Respectful: I treat others how I want to be treated. Are you being polite or rude?
Be Helpful: My words and actions help not hurt others. Are your being helpful or hurtful?
Be Careful: I treat friends and friend's things in a gentle way. Are you being gentle or rough?
Be Patient: I can wait calmly for someone or something. Are you being calm or restless?
