Loyalty and fairness are two qualities that are incredibly important to me, which is why it is so important for me to instil these qualities in G. For me they will help him to go a long way as he grows up and hopefully he will be surrounded by loyal people in his life too.
As G is only two and an only child it is difficult to find ways to instil these qualities into him, but I do encourage him to share with S and I, or anyone else that he is with at the time such as Nanna, Uncle Do-nut or his cousins. I always encourage him to be kind and fair to everyone. Sometimes he is a little too generous in that he wants to share his food and whether you like it or not that food will be shoved into your mouth!
I have a short video of G during the summer with his Nanna feeding the chickens at a farm we visited, he is sharing the cup of food with his Nanna and making sure all the chickens get fed! You can view the video below:
I always strive to teach G to wait his turn and not push in front of the other children, to be kind to them and considerate. Although he is an only child attending preschool four mornings a week is helping him a great deal. He is a very caring and considerate little boy to say he is only 2, if he sees that someone is upset or crying he will pat them on the head whilst making an “aww” sound, if you’re lucky you may also receive a cuddle!
For me as a grown-up and in a business sense I find that I have loyalty for banks, shops and service providers that continue to treat me with the same importance as potential new customers. Sadly not many businesses do though these days (don’t I sound old!) which is why I am pleased to be telling you that Natwest are also focusing on loyalty and fairness at the moment with their new Hello / Goodbye campaign. They are waving goodbye to great deals that are for new customers only, unexpected bank charges and giving that little bit of extra flexibility over credit card repayments.
I don’t know about you but I always feel annoyed by those special deals that are for new customers only, they only encourage me to move from one bank / provider to another on a regular basis and quite honestly I would prefer not to have the hassle of moving around, so to be rewarded for loyalty by receiving the same deal as a new customer it makes for much happier customers that will stay loyal in return.
Natwest have also created a video which is an experiment into fairness, it’s definitely worth a watch and is very funny! See the link below to view the video.
