Have you noticed how children these days have no manners? Since dd started school (she just finished third grade) so many moms and teachers at school have told me that she has such good manners and always says "please", "thank you", and says hi to adults first. I volunteer a lot in school and notice that so many kids NEVER say "thank you". also, they always expect the adult to say hi to them first. When I was young my parents tought us that children should always say hi to the adults they know. I don't know, but in my opinion I think it's rude for a child to wait for her friend's mom to say hi to her.

I've never heard there was a proper order of greeting before and wouldn't think to instill it in my kids. We do recognize there are people we know but who 'goes first' is not age dictated. [idmrmom]
Nice to see I am not the only one who had not heard of this.
