My husband grew up in a military family so manners was a really big deal and he has beautiful manners. He’s not from the South, but he’s even got the Sir/Ma’am thing down. Manner are so important to him, or rather, bad manners are so offensive to him, that I refer to him as the Manners Nazi.
This sweet board book, Mealtime, teaches good table manners including washing hands, saying “thank you” and “please,” trying one bite of everything on your plate, and clearing your plate. It’s a nice way to reinforce what you are saying. I will be giving this book away. Please leave a comment with a manners tip that you do with your child to win.
