Quincy Early Childhood students learn about R-E-S-P-E-C-T

Kids at the Early Childhood and Family Center in Quincy found out what R-E-S-P-E-C-T means during a special assembly Thursday.
Robert Bentley, from Legacy Martial Arts, was the special guest during Thursday's "Respect Celebration." Bentley gave examples of how the kids can show respect to their friends, family and adults.

Literacy teacher Jamie McDowell says when the kids go home she hopes their parents continue to set a good example.

"Anytime they use a big word like being respectful, just assume that kids don't understand what you mean. And kind of teach them what you mean by that. Show them the actions that match that word," McDowell said.

Bentley even taught the students some self-protection moves against strangers.
