It's so lovely to hear children talk politely, it isn't hard to teach them a few basic manners even when they are little.  Here are a few reminders of some manners we could share with our children. The best way is to lead by example, so try to stick to these rules yourself too!

  1. Say please and thank you.
  2. Do not interrupt when adults are talking. Say, "excuse me" and wait for their attention.
  3. Do not share family secrets or delight in telling tales in public.
  4. Ask permission, don't just assume its okay to do what you like.
  5. Don't make observations about other people (e.g. big nose, funny hair etc). Keep opinions to your self - unless they are complements!
  6. Answer when someone talks to you and make eye contact.
  7. Say thank you after a party or a tea play date.
  8. Ask for things to be passed down the table rather than reach.
  9. Don't make fun of someone else or say you won't be their friend for some reason.
  10. If you accidentally bump someone, say sorry.
  11. Don't use unkind words or ugly words.
  12. Don't laugh at another child's efforts or attempts at doing something.
  13. Don't pick your nose.
  14. If a parent or teachers asks for help, offer it and do the task willingly.
  15. Use cutlery not fingers for meal times.
  16. Use a napkin not your sleeve to wipe your mouth after meals and a tissue for your nose!
  17. Knock on closed doors and wait for an answer.

Thank you for reading... and good luck!
