Tommy is a bundle of energy, with curious eyes and a smile that could light up the room. 

One evening, as Tommy sat in his room, dressed in his favorite cute pajamas, he heard his mom calling him. "Tommy, dinner's ready!" 

With his mind still lost in his toys, Tommy went downstairs, and walked into the kitchen. There he saw his mom setting the table with a delicious meal. "Thank you, Mom," he said, remembering his manners.

His mom smiled warmly. "You're welcome, Tommy. Remember, saying 'please' and 'thank you' is a sign of respect." Tommy nodded.

From that moment on, he made sure to use those words every day, whether he was asking for a snack or getting help with his homework.

A few days later, Tommy listened quietly to his parents' advice about the use of electronics. He didn't interrupt; instead, he gave them his full attention, showing respect for their words.

After dinner, Tommy's dad asked him to help with some chores around the house. At first, Tommy grumbled, but then he remembered what his mom had said about respect. So, he rolled up his sleeves and got to work, knowing that helping out was a way to show his parents that he cares.

Before bed, Tommy hugged his mom tightly, wearing matching pajamas. "I love you, Mom," he said.

His mom hugged him back, with her eyes shining with pride. "I'm proud of the respectful young man you're becoming."

He now knows that respect is in everything - saying "please" and "thank you," listening, helping, greeting, and even just saying "I love you."

With a smile on his face, Tommy made a promise to himself to always show respect to his parents and everyone around him.
