September is the ideal time to teach the basics of good manners to kids as it is the start of the academic year for many schools.
Children not only feel good about themselves when they learn these valuable life skills, but they are also able to get along better with their peers, teachers, and family.
Applying the fundamentals of respect, kindness, courtesy and thoughtfulness enable children to become more considerate of others and less self absorbed.
Lastly, kids are more apt to be able to handle life in general when they know what to do in different situations that might arise.
Check out A Quest for Good Manners by Karin Lefranc, which is a fun adventure for kids to find good manners.
