MANNERS FOR YOUR PRESCHOOLER
We all want our kids to be successful and get ahead in life. Good manners are essential to children’s development and learning. They will need to send thank-you messages where necessary.
Below are a few tips you can begin practicing with your child:
Being Polite– ensure you use the following phrases with your children and encourage them to do the same.
- “Please, may I…?”
- “Thank you.”
- “No, thank you.”
- “Excuse me.”
Do Not Interrupt– Children are, by their nature, impatient — but they need to learn patience, which includes not interrupting. When the interruptions happen, say “Please don’t interrupt. Let me finish what I was saying.”
Avoid Bad Language– It’s very simple: if you swear in front of your kids, they are going to swear, too. Avoid this at all costs.
Be polite to Domestic Helps- children must be taught to be polite to domestic staff such as nannies, drivers, maids etc. Good breeding required that your child treats everyone with respect.
