"My mama taught me to respect my elders, respect everyone around me, and not to listen to things that can hurt my feelings. I'm the oldest of six kids, so I have to teach the younger ones and be a good example to them. When my little brother gets mad and wants to fight, I tell him just to sit down and take a deep breath. We all have jobs in our family too. Mine are to take out the trash, clean up the rooms, sweep, and mop. When we do our jobs and do good at school, we get an allowance."
