This was on the news the other night and I couldn’t wait to see it. Especially since this is what I did many moons ago. I wrote this post on manners a long time ago so most of you know they are very important to me.
This news story pretty much says that manners are just learned behaviors and if kids are taught them, they will more than likely be polite when they get older just because of the “habit” of it.
I also find this as well as with most other things in life is that others will often treat you the way you treat them. I say please and thank you or bless you or excuse me no matter who the person is. I say these things to strangers as well as people I associate with every day so I find, most people are polite to me right back.
Go read the article and then tell us how you feel and if you’re polite and if your kids being polite and using their manners is important to you.
