Manners Matter! A list of Children's books to read.

Mind Your Manners, Please!

Teaching children a few basic manners goes a long way.

    I am always trying to find a great lesson to teach my daughter. She is homeschooled, so it is my job to be mom and teacher. One thing we have always taught our daughters, is manners.
Yes, I am the mom who says things like, "That's not ladylike." You can call it old fashion or sexist, or whatever you want. I use it, it works, and we believe in it.

Manners are so important in everyday life. It should be a habit that is universal, but it has to be taught. Manners aren't something children are born with or something they just know.

"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it."
Proverbs 22:6

Teaching manners could be as simple as reminding a child to say please and thank you.
It can also be more difficult, as in teaching them not to interrupt someone when they are in a conversation.

There are a ton of manners that are fairly common and universal.
1. Say please and thank you
2. No hitting/biting
3. No screaming
4. Respect yourself and others.
5. Try to share
6. Table manners. Sit still, don't play with your food, etc
7. No burping or slurping
8. Use kind words
9. Help others
10. Do not stick out your tongue or roll your eyes

I'm fairly certain we all want children to understand and follow these, but we need to teach them.

As you all know, I am a total Book Nerd! Books are my go to for so much.
Teaching is one of the ways I use books daily.
Here is a fun list of a few books we either own, have read, or will be getting here soon!
I think my favorite one is the Dude, That's Rude!
You'll definitely have to check some of these out.

These are just a few of the many books available.
I almost always buy my books from
I just love old books!
Buy used!
Save a tree. Save your money!

I hope you find the perfect book for you to teach a child about manners.
Do you already have a favorite? I'd love for you to share.

When it comes to books, I don't care if it is for a certain age. and I love children's books too. I am definitely getting these for my niece and some for myself too.
And the basic manners will go on the sticky notes. Thanks for sharing!
