No time now? Pin it for later!

Respect for yourself and others, including those in authority, is very important. Once you have earned your purple and dark pink petals, you will know why!

Gloria Petal – Respect Myself and Others & Gerri Petal – Respect Authority


1. Read the stories of Gloria and Gerri and talk about them

2. Create a thank you card to send to someone you respect

3. Practice ways to respect yourself

4. Learn more about respecting others, especially those in authority

Read Gloria’s Story:

How did Gloria show that she had respect for herself?

How did she show she had respect for others?

What Girl Scout traditions (such as the quiet sign) show that you have respect for others?

Read Gerri’s Story:

Why do you think Lupe has rules for people who ride in her car?

How do you think Lupe felt when the other Flower Friends did what she asked them to do?

What other times did the Flower Friends show that they respected authority?

Optional video about the importance of rules and laws:

You’ve read Gerri’s story about respecting authority, and now you get a chance to do it yourself.

Write a thank-you note to someone who gave you a present, helped you out in some way, or you can even write a thank you note to send to your local firefighters or healthcare workers to thank them for working to keep us safe. Either mail the note to them or have an adult help you post it online so that they know how thankful you are.

Play a manners game – when you hear an action discuss whether it is good manners or bad manners and why.

  • Chew with your mouth open
  • Greet someone by saying hello
  • Say please and thank you
  • Get up from the table during the meal without asking
  • Stick out your tongue at someone near you
  • Put your napkin in your lap
  • Make funny noises while drinking your drink
  • Grab someone else’s snack
  • Ask to be excused from the table when everyone has finished eating
  • Help clear up the table

Think of three healthy things you can do to show that you respect yourself, such as eating a good breakfast, choosing healthy snacks, or getting some exercise every day. Draw a picture to remind yourself of what you want to do and put it someplace where you’ll see it often.

Talk to your family about the rules you all agree to follow and why they’re important. Ask an adult to write a list, and then draw a little picture next to each rule to remind you what they are.

Now that you have met Gloria and Gerri, print and color their pictures! (optional)

You’ve done it! Now you can recite more of the Girl Scout Law! I will do my best to be honest and fair, friendly and helpful, considerate and caring, courageous and strong, and responsible for what I say and do, and to respect myself and others, respect authority… Great job!

Don’t lose this! Be sure to Pin It!
