Good manners – day in, day out background for productive living
Nowadays we don’t think so much about hauling out rules for special occasions. We know as sensitive parents and teachers have always known that discipline is the result of everything that goes on between parent and child.
Good manners is essential for grown ups as well.
It is not something dosed out only to children, either. Good manners is essential for grown ups as well. It helps us all to be happy and comfortable. it enable to enjoy others and to be enjoyed by them. It is a day in, day out background for productive living.
In broad terms, discipline is a matter of learning how to behave. We want the lessons to stick, long after children are grown and the parents, teachers, or other authorities have bowed out of the picture.
Teaching children how behave
Teaching children how behave is not a simple task, we don’t want to merely stop them. Applying brakes does not show them what to do .
As children they are active, creative, and positive. they get things done and we want them continue to do so. Yet and here’s where discipline comes in, we want them to consider others as well as themselves.
We want to be fair, not cheaters. We want them to be gentle yet strong; cooperative, yet able to stand alone for what they think is right.
Good manners must of part of day to day activity
Teaching a child good manners should be the part of his day to day activity. Teach the child to hold to your hand when crossing the street and to park tricycle out of the driveway.
These learning add up and the sum total of your teaching over the week and months and years will surely determine how the child behaves.
Child age partly determine what is appropriate for this reason. As the child grows, you let him on more responsibility and make more decisions.
You often give him reasons for you rules you are less apt to need physically interference and are more apt to control the child with words.
