8 rules of decency, which you forget to teach a child

Parenthood today is not at all what was in our childhood, and even more so in the childhood of our grandparents. The eternal control of the child and the nervousness of the parents, pampered gadgets and many other characteristic features appeared in modern childhood.

But even in these unstable times, some things remain the same. The ability to teach a child courtesy lessons will never go out of fashion, whatever type of parents you are.

Here are some important etiquette rules to teach a child.

How do you say hello?

Many children tense up when someone greets them. Perhaps he is just shy. However, it is important to teach the child that it is customary to greet each other from educated people. What will be polite if he responds with a greeting. There are many options: good afternoon, hello, hello, good morning, etc. And do not forget to explain to the child for whom greeting should be used.

How to make and receive compliments

To respond to the compliment “thank you” is a common thing for an adult, but not for a child. And to make someone a compliment in general can be a difficult test. The easiest way to help a child is practice. Give your baby compliments and teach how to react to them.

How to continue the conversation

While some children cheerfully talk with each and every one, others freeze at the simple question “How are you?” Or, with a shrug, quickly answer: “Good.” Role-playing games will set the stage for constructive conversation in the future. Play the scenes and work out in them various variants of the development of events in such unconstrained conversations.

How to wait for your turn

Patience is a very important and necessary quality, but today many children want something immediately (or even better yesterday). Here the parents will have to try and teach the baby the rule to wait, let the others forward, share, stand in a queue and not swear when the ice cream ends with you.

How to answer by phone

Most children today can easily take your phone, unlock it, make a video, buy a new application, like something on Facebook.But can they pick up the phone and answer politely? Can they say: “Hello, says such and such”? Can they answer: "Yes, please wait a minute"? In most cases, no. But they know how to make 25 selfies of their noses or something else. Think about it!

How to say "thank you" and "please"

“Let me, I want to play!” - so the conversation of two peers can begin, which will end in insults and tears. “Magic words” have not been canceled, and you can teach them to use only by showing respect for your own child. It’s not a shame to add “please” when asking for a baby, and then thank him. Remember that we and only we - parents are a pattern of behavior for your child!

How to start and finish a meal

It doesn't matter if you eat at home, with friends or in a restaurant, it is important to teach your child to follow the rules of behavior at the table. Your fidget does not need yet to know how to use a knife and fork or what kind of spoon is needed for dessert. But to wait until everyone sits down at the table, not to leave his seat until the others finish, to thank and help clean the plates - this is something that should be practiced every day, first in your family, and then at a party.

How to say goodbye

It is important that the child learns, when he leaves, say “good bye” and thank for the hospitality in case he was a guest. Leaving without saying goodbye is a bad form, which the child obviously will not recognize without the help of adults.

Patience, politeness, respect and empathy are the four most important promises of good behavior that we often miss when teaching children. Although often it takes quite a bit of practice to consolidate this important knowledge for future generations.
