Manners need to be practiced if you are going to be answering the phone in your house. Never answer the phone and say, “Hey! What do you want?” Be kind to the people that call your house. “What do you want” is a great question, but not as soon as you answer the phone. Use a line like, “Hello. Who is calling, please?” When the call is not for you simply say, “Hold one minute, please.” This way they know that you are going to get the person that they asked for. If the person that they asked for is not available then you should say, “I’m sorry but they are not here right now. Could I take a message?” These are three easy lines that show that you have manners when you answer the phone. Your friends will learn from you and you will be able to learn how to talk to people nicely.
You know, it just isn’t Santa who makes a list and checks it twice. Everybody around you can see how you are behaving. When you scream and cry in a store because you can’t have ice cream, the workers see you. When you are trying to push other kids off of the jungle gym at the park, parents see you. Acting out in public is not good behavior. Being rewarded for your behavioral actions is something that comes with time. You will get that ice cream that you wanted, but it is to be a reward. Help mom and dad out with the household chores. You will be able to eat that ice cream in no time. There is no need to shout at your parents while you are grocery shopping. Bad behavior like that leads to absolutely no rewards. Think about a doll or a video game that you would love to have. EARN IT! Surprise your family with clean dishes. You will be very happy when you find a new toy on your bed. Don’t forget to make your bed, too!
