Excerpt from passage

It is important that you understand the rules of good citizenship. These rules help you in school, at home, and everywhere you go. You should use these rules in your every day life because they deal with sharing, helping people, and being a good person.

There are six rules to being a good citizen no matter where you live or who you are with.

Rule One -- Sharing

Good citizens always share their things if someone needs something. If you are able to offer a helping hand by carrying something for a friend who has their hands full or offering a pencil to the person sitting next to you then you should do it. Sharing involves taking turns, asking nicely before borrowing someone's things, and doing what you can to help improve the world around you.

Sometimes it is not okay to share and you do not have to. If someone wants to look at your homework you should tell them no. If a person you do not know asks you to go somewhere you should tell an adult you trust, such as your mom or dad, and you should not go with them. (continued...)
