What do our 4th grade students think about tolerance?

Tolerance is very important in both adults and children and it is an equal importance.   Being tolerant is the same as being respectful and considerate of others. It is a quality that is defined as one who respects the ideas, beliefs and forms of others. It is important to know that in order to overcome the problems of tolerance, you need to have the capacity of toleration. Personally, as a primary school girl, I can tell you that, to have good relations with others, we must be just as tolerant as we are with our family, friends, teachers and relatives. 


I have learned in my house to be tolerant daily thanks to my siblings, whom are with me everyday. We are very different and yet we try to share without fighting and to have patience even with our age differences. My sister taught me that my tolerance level is very high even though she is very young.  I have learned to have a lot of patience with her.  


The key: remember to be tolerant because that way we will be able to move forward and live in a peaceful environment.

Tolerance is important for peace. Tolerance means to understand others and it also means 

Honoring the attitude of the person and respecting the opinions and ideas of other people even

if they do not match your own. Tolerance means accepting and valuing the differences between 

people while appreciating that these differences enrich us. 


Recognizing that each of us has a limited perspective on the world and that together we have a tapestry of insights and virtues that are greater than those of any one person, tribe or culture alone. 


For tolerance we need to be good people and to accept people as they are and not how we want them to be. We need to have tolerance to make a change in the world.  We need to accept people that come from other places or that they dress differently because we all are the same.  It doesn’t matter if we came from Spain or from USA or so on, as that, we are all the 


Remember, we need tolerance to have peace.
