Manner #1

  When receiving something, say "Thank you."


  Manner #2

  When asking for something, say "Please."


  Manner #3

  Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency。


  Manner #4

  If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "excuse me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation。


  Manner #5

  When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later。


  Manner #6

  The world is not interested in what you dislike. Keep negative opinions to yourself, or between you and your friends, and out of earshot of adults。


  Manner #7

  Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, of course, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome。


  Manner #8

  When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had。


  Manner #9

  When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask them how they are。


  Manner #10

  Knock on closed doors -- and wait to see if there's a response -- before entering。


  Manner #11

  When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first and then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling。


  Manner #12

  Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. In the age of e-mail, a handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect。


  Manner #13

  Never use foul language in front of adults. Grown-ups already know all those words, and they find them boring and unpleasant。


  Manner #14

  Don't call people mean names。


  Manner #15

  Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows others you are weak, and ganging up on someone else is cruel。


  Manner #16

  Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit through it quietly and pretend that you are interested. The performers and presenters are doing their best。


  Manner #17

  If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse me."


  Manner #18

  Cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze, and don't pick your nose in public。


  Manner #19

  As you walk through a door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else。


  Manner #20

  If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "yes," do so -- you may learn something new。


  Manner #21

  When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile。


  Manner #22

  When someone helps you, say "thank you." That person will likely want to help you again。


  Manner #23

  Use eating utensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do。


  Manner #24

  Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary。


  Manner #25

  Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed。
