Marshal Rosenthal was a pioneer of Non Violent Communication.
This communication and similar versions are taught in prisons, major companies as well as Pleasanton Schools.
The PUSD teaches and implements A "Community Of Character" program.
*AS a family we try and go by these principals within our home and community. Our 6 year old child is doing BETTER than we as adult are, but WE are working on this!! I feel that as a COMMUNITY, WE should ALL be working REALLY HARD at this!
How many here on this forum can take a pledge to work towards implementing these principals within OUR COMMUNITY, including on this community FORUM??
How can we EXPECT our children as young a 5 to learn and implement these basic principals, if we as an ADULT are not willing to follow the same principals?
Building A Community Of Character:
Do what you are supposed to do
Always do your BEST
Be ACCOUNTABLE for your choices
Be KIND to self, OTHERS and the ENVIRONMENT
HELP others in NEED
Practice SELF CONTROL
Set goals and work towards them
STRIVE for PERSONAL IMPROVEMENT
TELL the TRUTH
Don't CEAT or STEAL
Use GOOD MANNERS, not bad language
BE COSIDERATE, HONOR the FEELINGS OF OTHERS
DEAL PEACEFULLY WITH ANGER, INSULTS and DISAGREEMENTS
BE reliable, do what you say you will do
Have the COURAGE to DO THE RIGH THING
Build A GOOD REPUTATION
