Teach Character and Manners to Children

You may have seen Michele Borba, ED.D. on the Today Show giving advice on teaching character strengths to children.

I was lucky enough to see her speak at a school in Philadelphia.  You can tell she is the EXPERT and one of the most passionate advocates for children and teens.

If you have not seen her, spend some time on You Tube to see and witness what I mean.

Thrivers: The Surprising Reason Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine 

Dr. Borba says Thrivers are made not born.

Even before the pandemic, children were stressed, lonely and overwhelmed.  According to Dr. Borba, we have focused so much on testing and being competitive, we have lost touch and not taught children how to be human.

When I read this….it caused a moment of pause. It is a profound statement and one I believe to be true.

Teach Character and Manners to Children

Here is the good news.  Character strengths can and must be taught to children. Character strengths, teaching manners and life skills are as important as academic success. 

Dr. Borba Lists Character Strengths As:

  • Self-Confidence
  • Empathy
  • Self-Control
  • Integrity
  • Curiosity
  • Perservance
  • Optimism

The book is filled with proven strategies you can easily teach children from preschool through high school.

I like how Dr. Borba gives you ideas on how to weave these skills into our everyday lives.  We don’t always need worksheets or lectures. 

By reading this book, we learn how to find meaningful ways to nurture the seven character strengths by modeling, discussing and pointing them out.

As always, thanks for reading and being a part of the manners movement.

A Teacher Becomes More Interesting When Teaching Manners in Middle School

Storytelling sets you apart as a middle school 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 middle school students too…only you don’t need to read to them….TELL them a story.

Share 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.  This matters to a middle school student.

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

They will remember it.  Understand it.  Use it.

What Are Good Manners in the Middle School Classroom and Why They Are Needed

Do middle 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
  • Ready to take more risks
  • 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.
