The power of acceptance



Our social skill for the next two weeks is defining and acknowledging ‘acceptance’ of each other. Every person is unique and special and we all have feelings. I asked some students what they thought the word acceptance meant.

I would like to share these with you as a wonderful starting point for understanding and accepting each other at St Francis of Assisi.

‘If you accept others’ differences they are more likely to accept yours’.

‘Treat everyone the same wherever they come from’.

‘Not accepting differences means you miss out on making more friends’.

‘If we don’t accept differences we won’t be able to show understanding of people who are different to us’.
