9780060185497: Emily Post's The Gift of Good Manners: A Parent's Guide to Raising Respectful, Kind, Considerate Children

From America's trusted name in etiquette, this comprehensive guide explains step by step how to teach manners to children from toddlerhood through the teen years -- the first such Emily Post guide in more than half a century. Etiquette authority Peggy Post and noted educator Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D., show parents, grandparents, and other caregivers how to teach children manners at every age and for every situation at home, at school, and with friends.

Uniquely structured by the stages of children's development, The Gift of Good Manners helps parents set age-appropriate, realistic goals as their child's world expands from crib and home to school, neighborhood, and community. Each section contains chapters on developing and demonstrating morals and ethics through specific actions; respecting oneself and others; and the essentials of spoken and written communication. Practical examples abound on everyday manners in every situation from the dinner table to restaurant dining; classroom behavior to sleepovers; and first thank-you notes to first dates and first job interviews. Special sections address parents' most asked questions; health and safety issues; toys, games, and activities; and special thoughts for grandparents.

The Posts also advise on sticky situations that today's families often face: easy ways for busy parents to teach and model mannerly behavior; navigating the social politics of birthday parties, carpools, and school events; supervising teen parties; negotiating use of the phones; and much more.

Filled with the practical examples and resourceful advice that has made the Emily Post name the etiquette choice of millions, The Gift of Good Manners proves that now, more than ever, manners are fundamental to success in life and are one of the greatest gifts parents can give.
