Teaching Kids Good Manners

As parents, we want our kids to have good manners. I am currently working with my 2-year-old on saying “please” and “thank you,” and “I’m sorry” after she hurts someone. It’s going pretty well, but she isn’t always sure which one to say when. She knows that she can more easily get what she wants with a sweet “peeeeeeaaaassse.” Then, after I give her something, I’ll say “what do you say?” To this, she may say “pease” again, or sometimes “sorry.” I’ll remind her, “Say, ‘thank you,’” and she says “tank ooo.” It’s a start and a work in progress.

Having good manners is a life skill every child needs. Here are some resources for fun activities that help teach kids good manners.
