A good citizen is someone who obeys laws and helps other people in his / her community.
A bad citizen is someone who does things that annoys others and causes problems in the community.

Why it’s important to be a good citizen.
We all live and work in a community and there are rules and laws that help the community. When someone doesn’t follow those rules and laws, it makes life unpleasant for some people. We must behave towards other people as though they were members of our family. Doing something good for others is doing something good for ourselves.
Ways to be a good citizen
You should think about and care for other people. You can help those who can’t help themselves. You can give your time and volunteer. You should look after the area you live in and not litter or damage property. You can also encourage others to be good citizens.
