Giving the Gift of Manners
a special feature from Kay & Leslie, founders of Grandparentslink

There’s no better time than the holiday season to help children learn a little bit more about manners! After all, life can be much more enjoyable with a little ‘please’ and ‘thank-you’. What better way than to give children their very own Thank-You Cards.  Go ahead and let’s do this the old-fashion way.  Purchase a cute box of cards for your grandkids to have on hand. Since manners are always in season, consider this a year-round gift of love.

Or, why not give a book on manners?
For children ages 4-8, there are entertaining books, such as:
Interrupting Chicken By David Ezra Stein

Mind Your Manners, B. B. Wolf by Judy Sierra

And for the older set, take a look at:
365 Manners Kids Should Know by Sheryl Eberly

How Rude!: The Teenagers’ Guide to Good Manners, Proper Behavior, and Not Grossing People Out by Alex J. Packer, Ph.D

“Teach love, generosity, good manners and some of that will drift from the classroom to the home and who knows, the children will be educating the parents.”
–Roger Moore
