Welcome back! I hope everyone had a relaxing spring break!
This week’s character challenge is to be present. Being present means that you give your friends, teachers, and family members your full attention. Today, many people multi-task while on their computers, phones, and tablets. However, this is not being present for the people trying to interact with you. Being present shows that you respect others and value their time. Teenagers and kids are not the only people guilty of paying more attention to their technology than to the people surrounding them...adults do it, too. It is important that we become more aware of these habits and make an effort to spend quality time with the people we care about.
