Importance of Respecting your Parents

In our Pacific cultures, the family is the centre of our way of life. There is an important connection between our identities and how it has been influenced by the people who have come before us. This is why it is so important to teach our Pacific learners the value of respecting their parents.

This video provides an overview of the fundamental value of respect; specifically, the importance of respecting your parents illustrated through a Pacific worldview. With reference to the “golden rule,” we explain to kids three reasons why showing respect for their parents is so important.
