The following "teamwork tools" were written by kids (ages 6-12). They are reprinted from the book, What The World Needs Now: Kids' Advice On Treating People Right, compiled by J.S Salt (aka Joel Saltzman).
Give, but don't expect anything back.
Don't leave people when they're in need of help.
Teach them something you know how to do.
Make everyone feel special.
Give people more chances in life.
Try to remember you're not the only one that can have a bad day.
Never look at someone like they're nothing.
Never say "I'm better than you."
Most people are fragile and deep
Everyone has a little "nice"
When someone does something good,
Give boosters not put-downs.
Say, "You can always talk to me if you need to."
Don't scream at people - EVER.
Compliment at least 3 people everyday
If someone is being mean to another person
If they say "I can't do it,"
Never say anything to make someone feel
If you say you will do something later ... then do it.
Be good pals.
Don't let your friends make foolish mistakes.
Stick together in bad times like glue.
Give each other presents to mean you
really are friends.
If you did something bad to someone ...
Don't pressure people into doing something
they shouldn't do.
Stand up for people who can't stand up for themselves.
Be nice to everybody even if they aren't nice to you.
If you really want to punch someone ...
Treat your enemies like they're your best friend.
Treat everyone you meet like the
Make people feel welcome and confident
Make people enjoy being around you.
When you treat people right you'll become a happier person with more things to be happy about. But treating people right doesn't always come naturally.
And remember ...
Don't treat people like you're the king.
