Teaching the art of POLITE CONVERSATION

  • Be a good listener

  • Listen to your children and guide them so that they know when they should be listening

  • Develop a less aggressive way of telling them that they have to wait when two other people are having a conversation

  • If they have forgotten what they were saying don't be dismissive but gently prod them to gather the conversation
  • Teach your children not to interrupt you when on a telephone call
  • your children will learn good manners if you exhibit them yourself.hence,if you have to break in on any conversation,make sure that you say"excuse me"
  • remember to praise your children when they let you get on with your work or conversation without interrupting you.
