Good Manners

Manners are an important thing to learn. Having good manners means acting in a manner that is socially acceptable and respectful.Good manners is about considering the feelings of other people, and being the kind of person that others will like and respect. Good manners can help you to have better relationships with people you know, and those you will meet.


In the 'olden days' children were taught about the Golden Rule - "Always do to others as you would wish them to do to you if you were in their place." This is still a good way to behave nowadays. If you are respectful to others, then you are more likely to be treated with respect by them. Here are some of the many advantages of having good manners:


  • Being nice at home sets the stage for better behavior.Your children watch how you react to various situations, so parents need to set examples and have good manners. If you are polite to them and consistent in following proper manners guidelines, they are much more likely to do the same.

  • Professional manners get positive attention. This will help you earn respect and possibly even contribute to promotions and raises.

  • Being polite to your friends will keep them around for longer. When your friends know you care enough to have good manners with them, they are more likely to include you in activities and events and want to spend time with you.

  • Romantic relationships are stronger when couples respect each other. Men and women who are polite and selfless are a lot more pleasant to be around than those who are selfish and rude.

  • Treating other people with respect makes them want to be nice back to you. Holding a door for a young mom or older person can make their day much better.

  • Driving with good manners can help prevent accidents. Road rage had never been good for anyone.

  • Good social etiquette will keep your name on the guest list. If you RSVP, show up when you say you will, be polite to others, have good table manners, know when to leave, and thank your host for inviting you, there's a good chance you'll be invited again.
