A wonderfully simple, practical paperback book which sets out beautifully all of the manners, respect and social skills to enable children to make a really decent start in life.
I've lent this out to a number of friends and it is always read avidly and given back with a smile.
Topics include love, discipline, attention, routine, continunity and consistency, example, respect, how to behave in public, simple courtesies, how to behave at school.
I am regularly complimented on my own children's behaviour by friends etc. This doesn't mean I can read a book and apply the rules, it is just a refreshing reminder that good old fashioned manners and etiquette are alive and kicking. My son struggles so much at school and we know that many employment avenues are closed to him but we tell him all the time that a smile, polite conversation and decent behaviour will take him far. Only time will tell but I LOVE this book, its one of the few baby, toddler, children related books I've read from cover to cover. Its helpful and practical. Well done Penny Palmano!
