How to teach your kids manners

In a world that seems to have gone to the dogs, you may be worried that your kids will grow up to be completely without values. In fact, the cartoons they watch these days don’t seem to help as they seem to perpetuate violence.

Well, dear Mother, the first thing I have to say is that if you have been doing your homework, then you have nothing to worry about, especially if they are still toddlers. By age 5-6 they develop a conscience, which is basically a system of rules that is based on what you have taught them over time. There are days they may flout the rules but that is because they are still learning to bring their impulsive nature under control. Kids will always do silly things, okay?

Now, let us go back to that homework I talked about earlier. Though I have met some polite children, I am still worried because a large percentage of the kids I have met, from the age of 17 and downwards lack manners. It is sad but true.

 While I agree that children are naturally silly, some of these kids are not actually being mischievous. They are flagrantly disobedient. They are spoilt, which is why I talked about doing your homework. 

The simple and most effective way to teach your kids manners is by setting a good example and nipping bad behaviour in the bud. If you want them to be polite, then be same to random people. If you want them to respect their elders, then never talk bad about anyone. If you want them to be kind, generous, neat etc. then do the same. 

Many of the children these days are mannerless because they have mannerless parents who don’t realize that their kids are watching them or assume their kids will naturally outgrow bad behaviour without correcting them (by which magic, abeg!).
