This page was designed to reinforce 


and teach civility and common courtesy. 


We would like to give children the added advantage of 


BETTER self-confidence to handle


whatever comes their way and to understand 


the importance of the core basics of respect,


dignity, safety, consideration, and honesty... 


the principles of basic manners.


Why are 


Manners 



Important?

Rudeness and a lack of respect and courtesy is a serious 


national problem, and most people say it’s getting worse.


Rude and selfish behavior is increasing. There is far too 


much impatience and disrespect for one another, which 


could trigger insults, dishonesty, cheating, road rage, fist 


fights, and a rash of other unfortunate incidents.

           

Angry aggressive drivers are causing more accidents, and 


foul language is being used with no regard for the elderly 


or our youth. Customer service... we rarely get. Some 


store clerks ignore customers and treat them as if they  


are a bother to them.  

Without proper manners, our polite



society would soon disappear and we 



would see fewer civilized 



human beings.

Manners help us show respect and 



consideration toward others.

Having good manners means thinking about others before 


ourselves. Good manners is acting with kindness and 


showing appreciation. 


Having good manners is actually allowing


the Golden Rule of... doing unto others as we 


would have others do unto us.


As we keep the Golden Rule... we become more 


enlightened and empathetic.  

Gracious behavior, the kind that shows consideration and 


thoughtfulness towards others, is important. It is also a 


breath of fresh air for those who witness it.

AND COURTESY



BEGINS AT HOME.


Children first learn manners at home. 

Our children watch how we react to various situations. As 


parents we need to set examples and have good manners. 


If we are polite to them and consistent in following proper 


manners guidelines, they are much more likely 


to do the same.

The reason many young people today do not know much 


about manners is because they never learned it at home.



Some parents no longer go out of their way to teach 


children and teenagers proper manners or how to be polite 


and kind... at home or in public.

Being nice at home sets the stage for BETTER behavior.

Manners still reflect on a child's family 


and what their parents and teachers taught them.

If children grow up with manners and decency ingrained


 in them, they will find it easier to move through life 


as the kind of person others find to be pleasant.

  

People respond positively to those who are nice to them


and who treat them with respect.  

Common courtesies are the endless


little gestures we make almost 


unconsciously... as we move 


through our day.


Manners are polite behaviors that reflect 


an attitude of consideration, kindness 


and respect for others.

A person with good manners considers others and


recognizes they are not the only ones who matter. 

Good manners is a process closely tied to

 

a child's development. 


As parents instruct and become the shining example,


their children will establish a basic understanding of how


they should interact with people and behave 


in a variety of situations.

What does it



mean to have 



good



 manners?

 The Golden Rule simply states... 


Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.”


The beauty of the Golden Rule is that it's simple yet 


profound. Only a powerful yet flexible principle such as


 the Golden Rule can serve as a moral steppingstone. It is 


the basis for respectful behavior and good manners. 


Rudeness is rooted in selfishness. Manners are meant to 


reduce the friction of human interaction; discourtesy


 reveals a lack of consideration for others. The ill-


mannered person is communicating that 


“It’s all about me.” 


Love, by contrast, cannot be selfish, for the simple reason


that love is concerned for the other person’s well-being.


 Therefore, love is mannerly.
