My understanding of the term honor.
Honor is defined as a source of credit or distinction, and is associated with reverence, dignity, reputation, good name and a good sense of what is morally correct. The key part to honor is having respect for others and for you; the two must act together because without both, there is nothing. I strongly believe that reputation is hard to gain and easily lost.

I read the article Neglecting neglect: some thoughts about children who have lacked good input, and are ‘undrawn’ and ‘unenjoyed’. This article focuses on children that were emotionally neglected early on in their lives. The probability of these children having long-term effects of this neglect is very high if not noticed by professionals or someone who is willing to take the time to try and help them.
In one case, the child was left alone in the crib most of the time and not given much physical input from the people around her. This made it difficult for her to show emotions whether positive or negative. She was considered a good child because she never asked for any help or
