Manners Matter: take ownership of your mistakes
This week's manner is one all ages can work on:
"Take ownership of your mistakes. In a situation that hasn't gone well, take responsibility for your part. Don't give excuses. Don't blame the referee or the coach. Don't place the burdn on a friend. don't decide it was the teacher's fault. Acknowledge how you contributed to the problem and how you can do better in the future..."
"If you see a real gap or problem, work for solutions instead of just complaining."
*From Brooke Romney's "52 Modern Manners for Today's Teens". We are focusing on one manner per week at school.
