Whatever happened to parents teaching kids manners ???
When I was growing up , it was normal for kids to say yes sir ,please, thank you , excuse me etc. A Lot of parents it seems are either lazy in doing so or for whatever reason . I dont likehearing kids say that sucks . IF you ask a teenager or a kid a ? u get "what" in respone not excuse what did you say ? My kids have manners and use them call it old school I dont care . I get compliments from others saying how well behaved my daughters are and how did u teach them to use those manners???? I had a kid come in to our home welcome themselves to our fridge w/out asking ??? Hello u wait till someone ask if u would like a drink or something to snack on .Dont go helping ur selves. I was also taught u dont go outside and eat in front of other kids it's rude unless u have enough to share . If my kids go outside I make sure we have enough ice cream for the rest of the kids ..common courtesy right ? And I HATE the word WHATEVER !!!My husband also is real good at teaching our daughters that men should open the doors for you not necessary car doors but doors to restaurants or shopping stores .
