A grandmother and I were talking about this a little while ago.
She says strangers seem shocked when her granddaughter uses manners in public. IE-please, thank-you, excuse me, etc. b/c the little girl is so young. (3 or 4).
Do you/did you teach your children manners (yes ma'am, yes sir, etc.) & at what age did you do so if you did.
If you don't/didn't--Why not?
