Book: Miss Manners’ Guide to Excruciatingly Correct Behavior

Read pages 52 to 55. the topics were “Children Should Be…”, “Children at Table”, “Guest Children”, and “The Children of Others”. Children are not naturally good and creative, parents should teach children rules and manners. At dinner, there can be family harmony and teaching children table manners at the same time. An example is ” Tell us what happened in your class, just swallow your food, then we’ll all listen.” You don’t really have to teach the children of others manners, nor your child have to teach them. But if they really annoyed you, you could invite them to your house later to teach them nicely how to be polite.
