It is useful for students at all year levels to be able to differentiate between the the ideas of 'good person' and 'good deed'. Point out that if someone does something useful the action is what we are focusing on. Talk about what this means and that this in no way is an assessment of the person; the who is not the what!
- Doing and being are different; do you know the difference?
- 'Can't do' now is a temporary condition unless you decide to make it permanent.
- A persons opinion of you is just that; an opinion. It is someones idea about you. You don't have to accept it!
- Remind yourself you are worthwhile no what I or others think of you. We don't give you your worth so we can't take it away from you unless you let us!
