Respecting your community

Respecting your community

Make a point of picking up garbage when out on a walk.

Discussion point: Discuss other ways you can show respect for your neighbourhood.

While walking in your neighbourhood, make a point of picking up pieces of garbage others have dropped. Let your children know that it does not show respect for others who live in the community when we litter, leaving our garbage lying around on the ground.

Explain that being “de-litter-bugs” serves others who use the park paths you have cleaned up. Talk about other ways you can show respect for your neighbourhood (e.g. following community rules, sharing sidewalks and walkways, saying hello to those passing by, etc.).
