    Teaching good manners to children is the best gift that teachers and parents can give to children. This article emphasizes the importance of teaching good manners to children and the benefits of doing so. I appreciated the point that it is not the child’s future that is affected by good manners, but the parents' reputation and related factors. As educators, we cannot leave it to the parents alone although they have an important role in that regard.

    Today, some parents are not teaching their children good manners and as a result, children are very disrespectful at a very early age. This video presentation is an interview with an etiquette specialist. She highlighted the point that if parents do not have good etiquette or manners they cannot teach them what they have not received – I totally agree. She suggested that good manners can be taught in a fun way and not with a hard hand. Teachers will be inspired by this presentation.
