Respect & Discipline

The definition of respect is showing a positive feeling of esteem for another person or entity. But, respect is not tolerance; it has to be a genuine feeling of honor and not just putting up with the other person. Respect is an important first step in building a relationship and I value my relationship with the Army. Respect is not something that is done when it is convenient, it is done at all times. The Army teaches this as part of the 7 Core Values for many reasons. Even though the Army teaches us that respect is something that is given to the ranks, it is important to have respect for every soldier that I am in contact with whether or not I like them and whether or not they are ranked above me, below me or with me. It is not about respect for the individual as much as it is about respect for the rank. Everyone deserves to be treated with respect but especially those I am serving my country with. We all have to be part of the same team and treat each other the same way we expect to be treated. It is what keeps us a strong and unified. By having our superiors teach us the value of respect, they are uniting us for when we have to do combat. We have to rely on fellow soldiers as well as our superiors and without respect we would not care about helping each other. I can not expect others to treat me with respect when I am not showing them the same. This is taught to us in boot camp and we are expected to maintain the 7 Core Values at all times without even thinking about it.
The 7 Core Values are: Loyalty (Bear true faith and allegiance to the U.S. Constitution, the Army, your unit and other Soldiers.), Duty (Fulfill your obligations), Respect (Treat people as they should be treated), Selfless Service (Put the welfare of the Nation, the Army and your subordinates before your own), Honor (Live up to Army values), Integrity (Do what is…...

Respect

...If you could teach only one of the three qualities of good citizenship (respect, responsibility, and resourcefulness) to your child which one would you teach and why? Although all three qualities of good citizenship are important to succeed in life, I believe respect outweighs them all. Respect is a quality that can be shown by the way a person behaves. Respect is an important quality because people can act in ways that do not reflect how they feel, the feeling of respect is more important than the behavior without feeling. The behavior will naturally follow when respect is present. Teaching a child respect is teaching them to consider other people feelings, needs, thoughts, wishes, and preferences. Also when a child learns to respect a person they learn to acknowledge a person along with being truthful and trustworthy. When a child has the quality of respect they will never have to use as much energy or resources to get their needs met. To have respect is to survive, so to teach a child respect is to help them succeed. Even though respect is earned it is still important to instill it in a child. Instilling respect in a child is teaching them to be loyal to others as well as obeying the rules and the land of the law. Respect also includes the idea of esteem or admiration. Having respected for a person is showing unspoken communication of how a child feels or views a person. Respect also helps build a strong and loyal relationship between people. For example, a child isn’t......

...RESPECT What is respect?   Respect is defined as esteem for or a sense of worth or excellence of a person, a personal quality or ability, or something considered as a manifestation of a personal quality or ability; the condition of being esteemed or honored.   I feel like everyone deserves to be respected regardless of who they are or where they came.   Respect is very important in the military for several reasons.   It is one of the Army Values.   Treat people as they should be treated.   This is the same as do unto others as you would have them do unto you.   Respect shows a sense of professionalism.   The instant obedience to orders is a must.   Whether you are in the military or in the civilian sector, respect is a key trait that will make or break you.   There are different aspects of respect in the world.   I look at two being in the military.   One is when you respect a person’s rank, position, or appointment over you.   The other is when 1.

...Preparation Outline 3: Visual Aids By Caresse Walden Specific Purpose: I want the audience to understand how the military members can accumulate money for retirement with a tsp. Thesis Sentence: While in the military I realized how helpful a TSP savings plan really is when thinking about retiring from the military. Introduction While in the military not only can you retire by getting the same amount of pay you were getting before you retired but, you can also put money aside in a tsp (thrift savings plan). The Thrift Savings Plan (TSP) is a Federal Government-sponsored retirement savings and investment plan. Congress established the TSP in the Federal Employees' Retirement System Act of 1986. The TSP is a defined contribution plan. The retirement income that you receive from your TSP account will depend on how much you have contributed to your account during your working years and the earnings on those contributions. The TSP offers the same type of savings and tax benefits that many private corporations offer their employees under so - called "401(k)" plans. Body 1. Some of the features of the TSP * Your TSP contributions are taken out of your pay before taxes are computed, so you pay less withholding tax now. * TSP earnings are tax - deferred. This means you don't pay Federal (and, in most cases, state) income taxes on your contributions or earnings until you withdraw the money - usually at retirement, when you are in a lower tax bracket...

Child Discipline

...Anton Shusterman June 4th, 2011 Child Discipline The most important thing in a child’s life is how his parents treat him. His future and the potential for growth and success are determined by the type of childhood that a person experiences. Sometimes parents don’t understand how important it is to treat their children well. Parents don’t think about the words that they say to their children or the actions that they take around them. Some parents think their children are too small and they will not remember the words and actions going on around them, but discipline is not only showing children how to live life and what not to do in any given situation. Discipline is also showing children what they are supposed to do and how they are supposed to conduct themselves in a given day or situation. The best forms of discipline are the ones that help our children realize their potential while making it seem like they are accomplishing success on their own. Children are thought as being difficult and hard to control and we have made movies and shows about such unruly children where their parents do not discipline them correctly and they turn out to be criminals or deadbeats when they become adults. In movies, where there are children that are treated very well i.e. educated, given love and affection, and told to treat others with respect they are thought of as boring, stuck-up, or arrogant. Movies such as Cheaper by Dozen 1 and 2 show how rich children who are successful are...

... members, military bearing is a broad assortment of rules and ethics that govern ones everyday life. For example, a clean and presentable uniform, knowing ones facing movements, and how to respectfully address an officer. Though Military bearing is more than just an outward appearance, the pressed uniform and close haircut and spit shined boots, back when black boots were worn, is motivated by pride in appearance.

Military discipline referring to the regulation of the behaviors of members of any military, this involving rules that govern goal orientation and behavior inside and outside the institution, including the socialization processes that happen in military training. Rules of discipline are firmer or laxer depending on the prevalent culture of the military's count or institution. As early as the time of the Roman army, discipline was enforced through military justice. In its original sense, discipline is systematic instruction given to disciples to train them as students in a craft or trade, or any other activity which they are supposed to perform, or to follow a particular code of conduct. Often, the phrase "to discipline" carries a negative connotation. This is because enforcement of order is often regulated through punishment.

..., respectful, organised, hardworking, mature, and patient. This means work can be done with no extra obstacles, as I will have the right equipment and attitude to do so. What happens without self-discipline? Without self-discipline you can lose respect and trust not only for yourself but for your team also, as it shows unreliability. This could result in you losing your place on that team whether it is at college/university or at work. Failure to comply with the set rules e.g. being late creates distractions to others ,when you have to question what the task is, because you have missed the briefing, you also won’t receive as much attention from your group leader and may not understand the tasks even when they are explained by peers/colleagues, therefore you may not complete it or it’s incorrect when you do. Also if you lose your place, there is one less team member which means one less mind available for ideas, one less pair of hands during practical work, and it looks bad on the team leader when they have someone who isn’t committed. * Adhering to team ethic This means following team rules and respecting the values within the group. Failure to do so results in: * Distraction * Loss of respect * Sets the wrong example * Loss of trust * Makes understanding tasks more......

...n July of 1974 The National Research Act was signed into law. Through this act, The Belmont Report was developed over 4 year period of time that included an intense four day conference followed by monthly meetings until it was completed in April of 1979. The Belmont Report sets out to define the ethical principles and guidelines for the protection of human subjects of research. The report was established prior to Barney Clark and the artificial heart and therefore was the guidelines that the doctors and researchers had to follow. The report highlights three essential ethical elements that are pertinent in human research and their applications. It was the professional responsibility of the doctors and researchers involved to abide by previously established ethical guidelines. Respect for Persons Respect for the Persons as it relates to the Barney Clark case can be broken down into three important issues. Autonomy The doctors made the assumption that Barney Clark was a fully autonomous person at the time of the artificial heart experiment. In general it is not in doubt that Mr. Clark was an autonomous being, however his terminal condition could have affected his capacity with in the case. While he might have been autonomous in many areas of his life the issue that is relevant to the case was whether he possessed the capacity to make an informed consent.

Respect

...Respect 1) What is Respect? Respect for me is accepting others for who they are, including both their strengths and weaknesses. Every person is different and that is what makes us a diverse society. Accepting those differences and not insulting or being rude to them means respect. It also means that there are boundaries that should not be crossed. These boundaries are social lines that should not be crossed under any circumstance. These boundaries change depending on who it is (friend, colleague, family member, etc) and the time you have known that person. The more familiar the person, the fewer boundaries there are, and the higher up in society, the more respect and admiration they deserve. For example, the boundaries towards your boss are difference than your friends’ because there are many conversational topic that you don’t discuss with your boss in order to not cross those lines. In all, respecting someone is admiring him/her for strengths and not criticizing for weaknesses. 2) What does respect look like? Respect presents itself in different ways in different cultures. In the western world, respect was often shown as how conservative people dressed or spoke to each other. For example, in order to go to church, women had to wear long skirts and use a veil in their head. This showed that they had respect toward religion and God. Now days, people exhibit these respect traits less in a physical way because each person wants to be free in their development of...

... that makes them feel appreciated and recognized, as positive discipline is based on the belief that all kids need to feel a deep sense of belonging. Modeling how to handle mistakes is an important part of positive discipline. For example, when you make a mistake with parenting, acknowledge it and apologize to your child. This teaches kids the importance of taking responsibility for their own behaviors and shows the importance of learning from mistakes. Problem-Solve Together: Caregivers are encouraged to hold meetings to problem-solve issues as they arise. This teaches children necessary problem-solving skills while providing them with opportunities to share their opinions. Mutual respect is an important part of the process. Positive discipline emphasizes the importance of kids having chores. Kids provide input about what chores they want to complete. This ability to have input into their chores gives them more a sense of belonging and motivates them to complete their jobs. Teaching is an important step in the process. Children are given clear guidelines about what is expected from them. Parents take time to train children how to clean their room or how to do their laundry. This provides kids with an opportunity to ask questions and can eliminate misunderstandings about their jobs. Positive discipline uses an authoritative approach, where a child’s feelings are taken into consideration. Children are encouraged to share about their feelings as well as discuss their...

Respect Nature

...Respect Nature People get everything that we need to survive from nature. We use the trees for wood to build houses, animals and plants for food, rivers for water, and so much more. Over time the resources that were once plentiful become scarce. As it becomes more difficult to find those resources we are forced to find new ways to meet our needs. We continue take what we want from nature but sometimes we do not pay close enough attention to what our actions may lead to. Without realizing it we could be cutting down entire forests or contaminating water sources. These actions would affect more than just us. The wildlife that also needs those resources to survive would start to disappear. Our actions could take the lives of many other living beings. It is important for the human race to be shown what exactly their actions lead to and how one act can trigger an unforeseen series of events. “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner”, by Samuel Taylor Coleridge shows us an excellent example of a man who did not respect nature and because of that he had to deal with an unexpected outcome. An Albatross came to save the Mariner’s ship that was stuck out at sea. Instead of respecting the Albatross the Mariner shot and killed it. The rest of the sailors were mad at the Mariner for what he had done but when the fog disappeared they thought everything would still be alright. Eventually their luck got worse and they became stranded again. They were all so thirsty and there was nothing that...
