Raising well-behaved and well-mannered kids is not as easy as we think it is. One thing parents should always remember is that we need to teach, show, and reinforce manners.
- Teach your children proper manners, such as saying “please”, “thank you”, and “excuse me”, as well as table manners and other proper social behavior. You can also send your children to charm schools if you want your kids to learn more about social etiquette.
- Modeling good manners is also one of the first best things parents and adults can do for children to emulate good manners. Speak well to them and other people.
- Reinforce good manners to children by acknowledging and encouraging them when they are being polite.
When parents and adults are able to instill good manners in children, these kids will have a happier social life that they can carry through adulthood.
