Two students working in partners.
Boy: Did you get the pencils?
Boy: Well that's ok I'll get it because I'm the gentleman...
I thought this was the cutest thing! In this conversation, we see that this young boy has seen, or has been taught, what it means to be a 'gentleman'. In this case, a boy who takes the lead or does something for a girl is considered ‘gentleman-like’ - he understood it so much that he even lablled his actions.
Lesson we learn from this: we are always sending messages to our children - whether explicitly or implicitly.
Do you think raising young boys to be gentleman is a lost art? Is that a word that society still upholds?
