NEW Parenting Manners Book: An Interview with the Authors

New Parenting Book on Manners: An Interview with the Authors

A new book, Modern Manners for Moms and Dads: Practical Parenting Solutions for Sticky Social Situations is being released this week.  This is a must read for parents and teachers.

I am thrilled I had the chance to interview them yesterday.  They are smart and savvy moms that share real-life experiences in their new book.

This is not your grandmother’s parenting book. Their book deals with issues on guiding young children in today’s hectic and ever-changing world.

From birthday parties to how to ask children if it is ok to post their pictures on your social media, all the questions you ponder as a parent or teacher are answered.

And some of their answers may surprise you.

Take time to make a latte or a cup of tea and enjoy as I interview them about all things sticky when out and about in your daily life with young children.

Yes, we get a bit nerdy about social skills but I promise you will learn so much that you can share with children, spouses and other teachers.

Here is a link to the videos, Part 1

A Teacher Becomes More Interesting When Teaching Manners in Elementary School

Storytelling is what sets you apart as a teacher.  Think about it.  As a teacher, I don’t need to tell you how much younger children love it when someone reads a story to them.

This works for elementary school students too…only you don’t need to read to them….TELL them a story.

A story about you and an experience you had.  Maybe you made an “etiquette” mistake.  Maybe you made the right decision with choosing to use your good manners in a certain situation.

Good or bad, share your story.  Make it real for this age group.

I can promise, they will sit up and listen to “your” story.  It will make you more interesting.

The moment you share your story is the moment you take control of your classroom and become more interesting as a teacher.  

Manners are not about rules so don’t teach it in that way.  Share a real life experience.

They will remember it.  Understand it.  Use it.

Do elementary school students need to learn good manners?  Is it still useful for students to learn good social skills?  Are you the one that needs to teach this?  Do you even have the time?

These might be the questions you are asking yourself about now.

Trust me, your students need you to show them how to not be socially awkward or uncomfortable.

When you teach manners and life skills in your classroom, you add a great deal of value to the lives of your students.

Here is how they feel when using good manners:

  • More confident
  • Self-assured
  • Empathy for others
  • Pride in showing their parents that they know how to use their good manners
  • Better manners in everyday life outside the classroom
  • Happier and healthy
  • Friendlier

“Me on Mondays” a Teacher’s Habit for Her Students

Why the title “Me on Mondays”? 

 When you listen to my interview with Elizabeth Osbourne, you will learn all about a very popular module in our Communication Skills curriculum.

Elizabeth and I connected by phone one evening as she had questions about our curriculum.  The school purchased the Manners To Go lesson plans to teach first impressions, communications skills and table manners to her students.  

The Hawbridge School in North Carolina where she has taught for many years has a dedicated life skills program.

Listen in, as we have an informative discussion about the benefits and the reasons why life skills are important.

Oh!  And listen for her discussion about a “slow lunch” and why this is so meaningful for her students.  In fact, they love it so much they ask for it frequently.

10 Tips to Teach Manners in Your Classroom:

Eye Contact

It is amazing what happens when you bring this to a child’s attention. Eye contact is the basis for feeling and showing that you are confident.

Handshakes

What a great way to start the day.  Greet your students every morning or end the day with a handshake

Lesson plan introductions

Introductions

The best way to teach about introductions, is to organize a role-playing activity for your students. They can pretend they have never met each other. Teach them to say “hello, my name is”.

Posture

Sit up straight.  Stand up straight.  Having good posture shows that you are confident and interested.

Napkin in Your Lap

Teach your students to put the napkin in the their lap during recess or lunch.

Conversation Skills

Do your students know how to start or carry on a conversation with each other or with someone they don’t know?

Be Fully Present | Put Down the Phone or Device

Isn’t it a beautiful gift when someone pays attention to what you are saying and shows they are interested?

What does respect look like?

Deference | Respect

Allowing someone to go first or opening the door.  This is deference.  This is respect. Model this in your classroom.

Greetings

Say good morning or good bye to your students or co-workers

Good Manners Set the Stage for Future Success

As an educator, you know how important social skills are for a child’s success. Children who are polite, well spoken, and attentive to others find it easier to get along with their peers and make a positive impression on the adults in their lives.
As a result, more opportunities come their way, laying the foundation for future success in life.

Yet too many children are not being taught proper manners or other valuable social skills at home. Which means it’s up to us as educators to equip them with these important life tools – and help them grow up to be responsible, caring, successful global citizens.

Now you can help students improve their behavior in as little as 10 minutes a day… a week… or month.
