    I am trying to raise my kids to have good manners.  If I see them saying something rude or interrupting, I tell them that is not okay.  But they are not quite getting it yet, such a phone manners and manners when their dad and I or other people are talking.

    I agree with Chuck. Learn by response....which goes hand in hand with my belief that parents need to nip it in the butt immediately ! 

    I will not respond to hissy fits. I let him know that I will not tolerate it and he needs to act right to get what he wants and if he continues to have the fit I walk away. I will return and ask him if he is done and then we move on from there and I explain that a fit is not the way to resolve anything.

    teach them!  we need to teach our kids manners, we need to be parents to them and not friends. pay attention to what they watch and who they hang out with.

    Preach it sister! And the example is both in our interactions with our children, and with other people... They are always watching and listening, it seems!

    Quoting liveforever:

    Lead by example!

    You can tell your kids do this, dont do that a million times....but if you are telling them to be polite and youre far from it...they wont listen for very long.
