Having good manners is something every person should incorporate in their own personality. Having them will lead you towards good social interaction and satisfying quality of life.
What does a manner mean by definition: Ways of behaving with reference to polite standards and social comportment.
Good manners are one of many things a child should learn in life. Incorporating them into their characters will open the possibility to be able to apply them wherever they are.
As times are changing and parents are becoming busier than ever, children are often missing the basics of good behavior.
But we applaud to each effort made from parents to well brought up their kids. It is a tough life today.
What Should Parents Teach Their Kids
- Saying THANK YOU when received something and PLEASE when they ask for something are the basics
- Teach them not to interrupt a conversation between people
- Teach them to say EXCUSE ME when they want to get an attention, or while walking in a crowd
- Not to give remarks to other people appearances or characteristics
- To give compliments when they are appropriate to be given
