Courtesy & Manners

Some parents may wonder if they really need to teach their youngest children about courtesy and manners. They might think that children will pick up on these habits naturally or can learn them later as they get older. However, the easiest time to learn anything is while you are young, and good habits learned early will set the patterns for a lifetime. When considering whether or not to teach your young gentleman to open a door for a young lady (or your young lady to thank him politely) or teach both of them how to enter a conversation appropriately (or how to wait, when necessary), or consider other people's feelings throughout the day, just keep in mind one easy question that will help guide your thinking - what kinds of adults do you want to send out into the world? Of course children will make their own decisions later in life about how they'll behave, but by teaching them good manners and courtesy now, at least they will have those behaviors as options to choose from later.
