Extractions: SEATTLE ONE MOM recalls a birthday when her then 4-year-old son fought with a guest over a blue balloon and ended up in a timeout, prompting one young guest to sigh, "This is the saddest party ever." Another watched mortified as her 5-year-old birthday boy burst into tears when he opened a gift and discovered it was a book. Just about every parent has a birthday-party horror story of someone birthday child, guest or even the adult host creating a major social blunder. "The pressure on the birthday child is huge, and the emotional temperature for everyone is abnormally high," notes Carol Wallace in her book, "Elbows Off the Table, Napkin in the Lap, No Video Games During Dinner: The Modern Guide to Teaching Children Good Manners." But while parents should be understanding of a child's faux pas, etiquette experts say they can use ubiquitous birthday parties as a way to teach manners for both host and guests.

Extractions: Snuggles and Gidget learn Some Table Manners When my friend Marsha asked me to care for Snuggles her Toy Poodle, while she traveled out of town, I readily agreed. I anticipated no problems having her as a weekend houseguest. As she dashed for the airport taxi, Maggie called over her shoulder that Snuggles didn't like anyone near her when she ate. This gave me pause, but I hoped that with proper planning there would be no problem. Unfortunately, my brother-in-law passed near Snuggles at dinnertime. The Poodle lashed out, and sunk her teeth into his foot. Clearly, Snuggles thought that she was in charge when he bit my brother-in-law! Hey, that's my food! Why did Snuggles act this way? In her mind, she was guarding a valuable resource and showing who was boss. A dog's natural inclination is to protect anything that he considers valuable. In addition to food, dogs may guard resting places, toys, mates, territory, and owners. In the wild, dogs work very hard to secure the things they need to survive. The dogs that are best at getting and holding on to important resources like food and dry, warm resting places become strong and healthy. The largest, strongest, and smartest dog becomes leader of the pack. He has an automatic right to eat first and eat the most. The leader disciplines anyone who interferes. Clearly, Snuggles thought that she was in charge when she bit my brother-in-law!

Click Here! Ages 5 to 7 When children enter school, usually around the age of 5, they become more independent. Since you won't be at his side all the time, make sure your child is equipped with the necessary skills for interacting with peers and adults. Increase your expectations. At this age your child should exhibit basic table manners, greet adults and carry on a simple conversation, receive and extend a compliment, introduce family and friends, and respect the feelings of others. Provide a prompt.
Teach-At-Home Features The lessons in phone etiquette taught in school were fun Recently, I asked my sonif manners were ever discussed phone call, or how to greet an adult? No, you http://www.teach-at-home.com/Commonsense-020103.asp
Extractions: One of my pettest peeves is the lack of phone manners. This has been on my mind for a while, but a recent incident had me longing for the days when phone manners were taught in school. Of course, proper telephone etiquette should be modeled and taught in the home as well - the practical setting. The lessons in phone etiquette taught in school were fun, but were important. Fun, because we didn't have to do boring subjects like math, and we got to make neat little phones out of stiff manilla paper, complete with a rotary dial. Then we'd have practice conversations with a classmate, as the teacher moderated and gave us the proper cues. Each child had a turn at placing and receiving "calls," there were no "star" students modeling for the rest of us.
Morality, Ethics specific suggestions on HOW to teach a child are necessary to being an adult withgood religionbased or not), ethics, etiquette, manners, appreciation, empathy http://www.saferchild.org/morality.htm
Extractions: "The true test of a person's character is how he or she behaves when no one is watching." Go to Suggestions for Teaching About Character Caveat: We could have tried (and almost certainly failed) to cover the myriad aspects of morality, ethics and manners. We chose instead to make this a small page. Our main goal is to recommend that parents not forget to teach these very important concepts to their children. We're reluctant to make many specific suggestions on HOW to teach a child about character because we recognize that our audience is worldwide and we know that different cultures have different values. But we do believe these concepts are as necessary to your child's well-being as are issues of self-care. So, as you peruse our suggestions below, please keep in mind that we aren't telling you what to do. If you have a different way, that's fine with us. But we encourage you to make sure that your child isn't growing up a moral vacuum adrift and at the mercy of outside influences. Some of the qualities we think are necessary to being an adult with good character integrity, honor, morality, faith and spirituality (these can be religion-based or not), ethics, etiquette, manners, appreciation, empathy, tolerance, fairness, compassion, generosity (of spirit as well as finances), honesty, ability to love and trust, respect, responsibility.

Extractions: Etiquette Program Overview: The purpose of this class is to take at-risk students and teach them proper etiquette, manners and social skills. Our goal is to help them make the transition to eighth grade, and/or high school, and into adult life. In today's busy world, parents are often working and doing the best they can during these volatile years of physical and emotional growth. Young teens are constantly challenging the adults in their lives. They are increasingly relying on peers, the media and their environment to gain the social training that they will need to survive in life. With the Mass media today, kids are accustomed to fast paced-action and violence. All too often, the students are receiving messages that are in conflict with what is valued by their parents and teachers. The polishing of social skills with your young teen will effect his or her future success in school, on the job and in relationships. These are the years for "falling into traps" with their peers in using drugs, alcohol and tobacco. Students do tease, provoke one another, and are susceptable to being pushed into fights and harassment of other students. They can also be a great comfort to each other, showing one another incredible love, empathy, compassion and generosity. By focusing the attention and training to appropriate behavior for productive interactions with peers; we will be using discipline around the values of guidance, teaching and sharing.
Good Business Mandates Polished Manners As an adult, perhaps you think table manners arent that important, but a job, andthe company may have to pay to teach them etiquette. Good manners is good http://www.crbj.com/Articles/2000/04242000/Good business mandates polished manne
Extractions: Good business mandates polished manners By Monika Ruef Mom always said, watch your manners before you went to eat at a friends house. As an adult, perhaps you think table manners arent that important, but a new trend in business etiquette and protocol education suggests otherwise. Classes on how to eat properly at business dinners, pamphlets on how to dress impressively for presentations and specialists advice on appropriate conduct during meetings exemplify the newfound emphasis on business behavior. Pam Thompson, franchise owner and manager of Norrell Temporary Agency, says, A lot of people have not been taught social graces. Just like some companies work on individuals management skills or computer skills, some companies have realized they are going to have to work on social skills. Cindy Grosso has been teaching etiquette and protocol for 12 years. Social grace is a lost art, but people are going back to that, she says. They see how attractive and graceful someone is when they act correctly and have good manners. Manners have become less important because of the fast paced life society leads, with microwaves and fast food becoming the norm, says Grosso. We dont slow down enough to teach our children good manners. No one has time. You dont grow up in a society like that and have manners when you grow up.

Extractions: One of the best parts of my life is serving as the scoutmaster of our local Boy Scout troop. Often, on a cold winter morning in the woods, I question my sanity of accepting that opportunity as I struggle out of my warm sleeping bag to help with breakfast! But I really enjoy the boys and the values that Scouting teaches them. But I have noticed a decided lack of respect and manners by many of these twelve to fourteen year old Boy Scouts when it comes to adults, parents and leaders. Some of the most basic rules that I learned as a boy-like saying "please" and "thank you" or like not calling adults by their first name-are no longer part of their consciousness.
