The first impression people have of you are usually what they remember you by so good manners are something you should always incorporate when making those initial impressions with someone.
“Say please and thank you”. “Don’t talk with your mouth full”.”Sit up straight”. .. Lets face it, manners aren’t something we are born with. Good manners are taught to us by our parents and we return the favor by teaching them to our children and hopefully they will continue the cycle. Manner’s are important because it lays the foundation of who you are, how you treat people, and how people will treat you.
Currently I’m in the process of teaching my oldest son all the manner’s I believe are important right now, so when he goes out into the real world people will know he was raised
with some sense! RESPECTFULLY. 😂
I thought it would be a good idea to write out all the manners I’m trying to teach him in a blog post because I know that someone somewhere will need this!
