Why did my daughters doctor look at me like I was crazy when I told her she tries to say thank you?

  • Because manners are a rare and shocking thing in today's society. Good for you!

  • Who knows. My son has been saying thank you at the right time for a while. Now if I can just get him to say please...

  • My children were both signing please and thank you at 9 months old and saying it around 14 months so every one could understand. Maybe the doc was just surprised that your child had manners. I don't see why it would be shocking that a child that age could say something like that otherwise!
