 All About Manners

Children's Book About MannersDepending on your age, you may remember Miss Manners. She was and still is (at 75) the manner-guru of all time. Miss Manners taught social etiquette and how to “be a lady and a gentleman” – skills that are missing in our society as a whole.

If you were raising a kid 40 years ago, having an impolite child wasn’t an option. Rude children grew up to be rude adults, so it was nipped in the bud when its naughty head even tried to peep out. Plus, if your parent’s didn’t catch you in the act of being impolite, they could always count on the older generations for back-up. And don’t even think about acting up in school. Unlike today with the teachers being “afraid” of most of the students, corporal punishment with a “strap” was very much enforced when necessary.

That was then and this is now…

A Happy Family Eating a Meal Together While Staring in the CameraHow many times have you gone to a mall or restaurant only to have someone’s child raising the roof with their carrying on? “Back-in-the-day” this was reason enough for my mother to march me out of the store (none too quietly) and deposit me back in the car with my father. Today when a child misbehaves it’s called, “precocious” or “expressing themselves.”

Don’t get me wrong, I don’t believe in smacking your child every time they forget their please and thank you’s, but there has got to be a happy medium. And let’s not forget, rude children do grow into rude adults.

What happened to the simple courtesy of holding a door for someone? Or if someone drops something on the floor, you simply bend over and pick it up, rather than step on? (Yes it happened to me). I long for the days when kids looked up to their elders in a place of respect, not loathe them for their rules and knowledge.

Group of Four Kids Playing a Board GameMaybe I’m just old fashioned, but Miss Manners would be on my side. When did the rules change? When did we trade social graces for the boisterous, in-your-face attitudes that are so prevalent in our Western society today?

If there is any example we sould look to for guidance in the manner department, it would be the Asian culture. They are polite to the extreme end, respect their elders and have been taught manners for generations.

When we are raising our children it’s easy to let them slip in the manner department, but we are just setting ourselves up for disaster in the future (teen years), plus, we are doing them a dis-service. How can a man or woman be expected to survive in the corporate or professional world without the simple basics of manners?

Let’s put manners back into our parenting arsenal. Let’s raise a generation of polite kids and in turn give the world the respect it so desperately lacks and is seeking out for the future.

    Learning manners should be taught in the home, and it is one of the easiest things to teach, even at a very early age, but it is not always done. This kid video book is a great tool of parents in teaching their child good manners.

    I greatly believe that having good manners are very essential as these are the first things you need to have to show you are a good person. Through your manners, you can truly show your attitude or what you really are to other individuals. Manners must not be shown to the persons you know but also to the persons you will meet especially your neighbors. You don’t like people without manners right? Therefore, everyone must have good manners and right conduct so that they will live their life happily with everyone. These are the things kids must know and practice.

    Manners are necessarily needed everyday no matter who you are and where you are. It is our guide to the proper way of acting that is socially acceptable. Your manners show how your parents taught and raise you as a child but in some instances, manners are also learned and acquired based on the environment. This video book shows how important manners are not only for kids but also for adults.
