It’s important to learn good manners early. It is helpful to teach your children the benefits of consideration for others and being polite.
The repetitive use of the phrase “What is the magic word?” has children answering “Please”!
I'm a huge fan of teaching children good manners from the start. It's something my parents always did with me and it's much nicer to hear children saying please and thank you without their parents telling them to say it. I do get quite annoyed with a lot of cartoons that seem to have a message of how to resolve squabbling etc rather then showing the characters as being well behaved from the off. I'm going to be having a look out for this book. Mia is very good saying please and thank you but it never hurts to keep message of manners. I'd love to see kids books about not swearing but it might be a hard one to cover. I heard a 4 year old at the doctors the other day use the 'F' word. I was so shocked and his mum told me she doesn't know where he gets it from. I sure do. That's all the boys dad was saying when they were talking. Terrible. I'm off now to go track down this book.
