On a quick visit to the bookstore a few weeks ago, I picked up this book: Manners That Matter for Moms. I haven't finished it but I'm loving what I've read so far. In fact, the skills are so relevant and important that I've decided to incorporate an etiquette class into our upcoming school year. Because I like to think that I'm clever, I'm going to call it Manners Monday.
This is a book that goes beyond saying please at the table and thank you when crayons are shared. It discusses the hows and whys of lifelong skills as well as tips and tricks for learning them so they can become habits.
