The Guide Laws
There are six parts to the Guide Law. These are the six parts with some examples of what each means.
- A Guide is honest, reliable and can be trusted.
Honesty includes always telling the truth. Reliability could be doing the jobs you promise to do. Trustworthiness includes doing homework yourself, not copying someone else's.
- A Guide is helpful and uses her time and abilities wisely.
A helpful person does jobs such as weeding the garden, washing the car or doing the washing up without being asked. Use your time and abilities wisely by practising your hobbies or trying new ones, so that you don't get bored or fed up.
- A Guide faces challenges and learns from her experiences.
Being tidy, arriving on time, doing as parents ask, trying not to be afraid or to grumble, as well as trying adventurous activities, can be a challenge. Each time you are challenged, try to remember how you cope, to make it easier next time.
- A Guide is a good friend and a sister to all Guides.
For example, try to help a new guide when she joins your unit.
- A Guide is polite and considerate.
Do you always give up your seat on public transport to someone who needs it more than you?
- A Guide respects all living things and takes care of the world around her.
Do you pick wild flowers, disturb nesting birds, drop sweet papers and bus tickets, or throw away your drinks cans? Think about what you can do to make the world better, then take action.
