Teaching children at Mother Givers Humanist School about humanism with Donation Funds from Steve Hanna - Thank you

On Wednesday 19/04/2017, I taught children at Mother Givers Humanist School. Two principles that include tolerance and sharing were covered.

We had already covered dignity, Respect.

Children learnt about the 3rd and the 4th Humanist school values.

Remaining sessions are: No Domination, no superstition, conservation, No war, Democracy and education

Tolerance and sharing

Tolerance: This principle deserves that one should respect ones beliefs and life styles.

Children participated well and they understood that tolerance is the commitment to respect human dignity or a fair and objective attitude towards those opinions and practices that differ from one’s own.

In this case they realized why humanist should be respected, just like humanists regard the poor as humans who deserve respect and support.

Children realized in short that that every person should cause tolerance is a beneficiary of tolerance

About sharing; this involves sharing with those who are less fortunate and assist those who are in need of help.

Children realized that sharing is a fundamental action.

The children defined it as follows:

- giving other on the little that you have

-giving those who don’t have.

-Guiding and counseling others to help them get out of problems or improve on behavior

-Wishing others good by offering a service or giving directly to a person.

From there they generated the importance of sharing after saying that they do give friends on their mangos. they said sharing creates friendship, good learning and catching up with others, acquisition of development knowledge ,psycho social health, creates forgiving others and enhancing discipline.

Children thanked me for teaching them about tolerance and sharing.

It will help us stay in harmony and peace, long live; a student said.
