Good manners start early — at home
• Respecting other people’s property and privacy;
• Behaving well at the dining table;
• Not being rowdy in public;
• Not interrupting or contradicting;
• Not demanding one’s way all the time.
Choose the manners that are most important to you and your family and concentrate on those.
If you start teaching manners consistently and with purpose in the preschool years, they should be a habit by the time a child enters school.
