Golden Rule Mentoring
Last week in a Buffalo School, we spoke to some students about "sowing and reaping." One student misunderstood the word sowing. She thought we meant sewing. We had to explain and spell the words sew, sewing, sow and sowing. Our educational opportunities were expanding, we love that part of Mentoring.
A good Mentor is interested in the whole being of their student. Today we will be in Buffalo School #32 during Health Class. We will teach from the Health Textbook along with our Mentoring Life Lessons. We try and be open to any learning opportunities that just happen to appear along the Mentoring Road. If I was the student, I wouldn't want to miss any opportunity to learn something new. The Golden Rule is simply:
"Do unto others as you would have then do unto you."
Sowing and reaping could be a synonym for the Golden Rule. It's an absolute-universal principle that remains forever unchanging. Part of your thought process in preparation for your Mentoring session should include "role reversal." Ask yourself if you are giving what you would like to be receiving if the roles were reversed and you were the student.
Thanks for your time.
Go do something nice for somebody.
