hi this is Laura Turner and today I’m
00:02
going to talk to you about how to teach
00:03
good manners teaching good manners is
00:07
really about exemplifying those matters
00:10
yourself if you’re going to teach your
00:13
child about good manners for example you
00:16
can’t sort of say you know Johnny keep
00:18
your elbows off the table when you’re
00:20
eating and then turn around and do it
00:23
yourself and then Jaya will say you know
00:26
Oh mom you’re doing it you know yourself
00:28
by are you so first of all exemplify
00:31
good manners in order to teach them
00:33
because manners are really about copying
00:36
the mannerisms of other people into a
00:40
socially accepted you know norm next
00:44
make no exceptions for manners if you
00:47
want Johnny to have good manners at the
00:49
dinner table make sure he has them at
00:52
the dinner table and make sure he has
00:54
them you know when you’re out to eat
00:55
somewhere make sure he has them you know
00:58
at seven o’clock in the morning on a
01:00
saturday when he’s breakfast you know
01:04
you don’t have to be a complete Nazi
01:06
about it but do try to make no
01:09
exceptions you know say Johnny you
01:12
should always have good manners not just
01:14
when you’re at home with us and not just
01:16
when your mom is watching finally give
01:20
clear guidelines to the children make
01:22
sure they know exactly what you expect
01:24
of them and why you know why is it not
01:28
good manners to put your elbows on the
01:30
table and then you know you could
01:32
demonstrate you know how how it makes
01:34
you look when you eat with your elbows
01:37
on the table or when you chew with your
01:39
mouth open and you’ll say you know isn’t
01:41
that gross Johnny and just learning by
01:43
example learning by showing and finally
01:46
implement a reward system if it’s really
01:49
something really important that johnny
01:51
has to learn for purposes of etiquette
01:53
you know he’s going to go to a to a
01:56
dinner in his you know family’s honor or
01:59
something and he really needs to know
02:00
how to use a specific fork for the salad
02:02
and for the dessert make sure that he
02:05
practices it and then therefore you give
02:07
rewards to him or her for actually
02:11
practicing this good at
02:12
because you know it’s it’s about looking
02:16
at people seeing how they act how that
02:18
makes you feel and about teaching people
02:21
how to make each other feel comfortable
