Small children are naïve and innocent. They sometimes say or do things that might be considered impolite or disrespectful by other, but most of the time children do not do these things intentionally. Hence, as a parents and/or teacher it is our duty to teach the children the essential etiquettes.
We made the list of top 10 etiquettes that every parent must teach their children: –
1; Saying Please, Thank You, Sorry, Welcome
Children from a young age should be taught to use the words like Than you, welcome, sorry and please whenever they want or wish to have something or talking to somebody. This is our very basic manners you can inculcate in your conversation with your child and they will pick up this habit from you, remember it for all their life. These little things make your children to communicate better and become a respectful individual.
2; Table Manners
Basic table manners such as using the proper cutlery, not sitting with your elbows on the table, not chewing loudly and never talking while you are eating are a few table etiquettes that must be taught to the children from a young age.
3; Never Criticize Someone’s Appearance
Children tend to speak their mind which is the reason they are so pure. But sometimes. They tend to make remarks or comments that could be hurtful or even insulting to others. Thus, it is important to teach children that they should never criticize someone’s appearance or make bad and rude comments.
4; Never Interrupt
Children love talking and expressing themselves, but while doing so they may end up unintentionally interrupting important or serious conversations. Thus, parent and teacher must teach the children to wait for their turn to speak.
5; Share Your Things with Other
Children are very naïve and innocent, they need to be taught the importance of sharing their thing and enjoying together with their friends. This value teaches them not to be selfish or greedy. This habit is also very important in social settings.
6; Knock Before Entering
Barging into rooms and disturbing people’s privacy is considered utmost rudeness, if children are not taught this lesson at a young age, it could land them as well as you into very awkward and uncomfortable situations.
7; Never Use Foul Language
Children interact with a lot of people and sometimes they may end up picking a bad language or abusive words from others. It is very important for parents and teachers to closely observe children’s behavior and refrain them from using disrespectful language.
8; Basic Hygiene Manners
Basic Hygiene manners help in keeping diseases and infections away and leading a healthy life. Covering mouth while sneezing, not picking nose, washing hands after going to the toilet are some hygiene rules that parents should actively inculcate in children’s lifestyle.
9; Never Bully
Making fun of others or targeting a particular person in a group is very rude and a mean thing to do. Such things may hurt the bullied child’s feelings. We need to teach our children to not participate in such activities and also inform their parents or teachers if they are facing any such problem in school or other places.
Children are very innocent and pure, it is our duty as their guardian to shape them as good human beings.
