- Usually, do not interrupt grown-ups who are talking to the other person unless there can be an emergency. They’ll notice you and reply when they are done talking is good Manners.
- If you do have to get somebody’s attention right away, the saying “pardon me” is the most polite way for you to enter the dialogue.
- When you yourself have any question about doing something, ask agreement first. It could save you from many hours of grief later.
- The globe is not enthusiastic about what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you as well as your friends, and out of earshot of people.
- Do not touch upon other’s physical characteristics unless, of course, it’s to go with them, which is often welcome.
- When people ask you how you are, inform them and then inquire further how they are.
- When you yourself have spent time at the friend’s house, be sure you thank his / her parents for having you over and for the nice time you’d.
- Knock on closed doorways — and hold out to see if there’s a response — before getting into.
- Once you make a phone call, bring in yourself first and then ask when you can speak with the person you are phoning.
- Be appreciative and say “thank you” for any gift you obtain. In age e-mail, a handwritten thank-you notice can have a powerful effect.
- Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know those words, plus they find them boring and upsetting.
- Don’t call people mean names.
- Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weakened, and ganging up on someone else is cruel.
- Regardless of whether a play or a set up is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you will be interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best.
- If you bump into a person, immediately say “Excuse me is good Manners.”
- Cover the mouth area when you cough or sneeze, and don’t pick your nose area in public.
- When you walk by having a door, look to see if you can hold it wide open for another person.
- If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor focusing on something, ask when you can help. If they say “yes,” achieve this — you might learn something new.
- When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a giggle.
- When someone can help you, say “many thanks.” That person will probably want to help you again. This is also true with teachers!
- Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or monitor what adults do.
- Keep a napkin on your lap; put it to use to wipe the mouth area when necessary.
- Don’t grab things at the table; ask to keep these things passed.
