THE IMPORTANCE OF TEACHING CHILDREN GOOD MANNERS..

If itโ€™s becoming widely accepted that manners no longer matter, then why should we care whether our kids have good manners at all? Just because everyoneโ€™s doing it, doesnโ€™t mean we should follow the downward trend.

Good manners are still critical to a childโ€™s successful growth and their ability to build positive relationships throughout their lives. 
At the core, good manners reflect respect for our self and others. When we say please and thank you, we are taking the time to make someone else feel appreciated.

Our children depend on us to show them how to be trustworthy, considerate, and kind to others so that they can take these skills with them throughout school, the workplace, and in their relationships.  

HOW TO TEACH CHILDREN GOOD MANNERS

Itโ€™s never too early to teach your children good manners, but you may reach a point that it becomes a major struggle if you wait too long. One etiquette expert suggests teaching kids the basics of good manners by the time they reach eight or nine years old when they completely understand what respect means.  

Some of the Main Concepts to Teach Your Children

USING NICE WORDS

Teach them how to say magic words like please when they ask for something and thank you when they receive something. It is also important that they learn to say they are sorry and excuse me when appropriate. Bottom line โ€“ they should try to be as kind as possible to others and treat them as they would want to be treated.

INTERPERSONAL CONNECTION

Give them the skills to be able to communicate and connect with others. Some guidelines include:

Not interrupting others while they are talking.Speaking in complete sentences instead of one-word answers.Give full attention to someone talking to them, which includes looking them in the eye. Be sure to smile to appear inviting and interested in what others have to say.If comfortable, shake hands or hug the person.

GOOD SPORTSMANSHIP

Teach your children to lose gracefully and to always thank their opponent at the end of a game. By focusing on the positive aspects of sports and games like taking turns, learning new skills, playing as a team, and reaching their goals, there will be fewer bad manners when they lose.

YOU CAN ALSO USE SOME FUN, CREATIVE WAYS TO INSTILL GOOD MANNERS IN YOUR CHILDREN

Ask them to write real thank you notes after they receive gifts.Create a charades-like game by teaching them signals when they need to use better manners, such as tapping the corner of your mouth when they should to use a napkin or putting your pointer finger up to your lips when they need to stop talking and give someone else a turn.Make a good manners collage by cutting out words and images that can be hung up as a reminder.

School Anxiety In Children.

Please share your thoughts๐Ÿ’ญ๐Ÿ’ฌ .

School anxiety is awful for children and heartwrenching for parents. Itโ€™s so common, but it doesnโ€™t always look the same. Sometimes it will dress itself up as illness (headaches, tummy aches), sometimes as a tantrum or fierce defiance, and sometimes it looks exactly as you would expect.

DO YOUR CHILD DISPLAY ANY OF THESE SYMPTOMS WHEN IT'S TIME FOR SCHOOL, ARE YOU LISTENING TO THEM?

Comment on Facebook

You understand a great deal about these children and their anxiety.You know too well the pressures that are placed on them to perform no matter what.I could not be a mean teacher even if the child gives us reason to be.My great concern is the creativity and love for teaching are being lost mainly because of the new Curriculum.Despite all of this every child needs a Champion especially the boys who don’t really wear a mask.Whew! A mouthful!

So true doc parents need to have that conversation with there kids ask about how was there ect to kw what's happening
