Good manners do not come naturally to children (or adults!), but they are a necessary part of living in society. Not only are children with good manners more pleasant to be around, but it will also make their life A LOT easier as an adult.
Set your child up for success by starting to practice good manners early and making them a part of your everyday life. Don’t hesitate to nag them gently until they become second nature and always lead by example!
Here is a list of twelve good manners your child should have mastered by the time he or she turns 10.
1. Say “Please” and “Thank You”
“Please” and “thank you” should be amongst the first words that your child learns. Practice relentlessly: whether it is for a toy or a service, remind your child always to ask politely and thank whoever did them a favor.
