Encouraging Your Kids to Use their Manners During the Holidays

It can be nerve racking going to a family gathering and hoping your kids will be appreciative and use their manners. Preset your kids before going to the gathering and let them know what your expectations are. It's important that they understand that even if get a gift that is something they don't like, they should still use good manners, say "thank you" and show appreciation.
Check out this fun game to encourage manners...
Have your kids pick random items in your home and then have them give these items as a present to each other. When they open the gift (even if it's toilet paper), they must say "thank you" and also something nice about it. This is a fun way to get your kids ready for the holidays!! Make using manners fun and of course praise them when they do a good job!
