Being friendly with your kid doesn't mean you should allow them to do whatever they wish. There are a set of good behaviors to be taught to carry forever. The very first among these is to greet others with respect. Giving respect should not be discriminated by ages or priorities. Whether it is an elder one, or a peer, all should be respected in their own way. Teach your tot to greet a person when saw first. Remind them to show politeness and decent behavior always. Making them aware of this helps to curb their aggressive and impatient behavior.

Let us look into some good manners.

Being polite and kind

Kindness defines a person's "golden heart". Teach them to treat everyone with a kind heart. Throwing bad words or behaving rudely should not be the way your child grows up. Also tell them to love pets and animals in the same kind way. Some children may do silly things like hitting them with stones, throwing hard materials and so on to hurt. This may get developed, and they may begin to exhibit such behavior toward anyone they dislike.

Politeness and kindness are two significant manners your child should be taught.

Respect for everyone

Your child may be the excellent topper or the hero everywhere, but if you don't teach him how to respect others, it's all for naught. Respect is the one thing you must teach them to follow in life. Giving respect to everyone they meet will create a positive impact. You are also treated in the same way, which makes the conversation and bonding more comfortable and trustworthy.

The happiness of sharing

As with the saying "sharing is caring," you should teach your kid the value and greatness of sharing with their friends and family. A kid willing to share his favorite food or toy with his siblings or peers has a good heart. Teach them to share food, toys, color pencils, and everything else with their peers, and tell them this will create good friendships wherever they go.

Table manners for kids

Most parents ignore teaching their children table manners, allowing them to eat as they want. But this would turn into a nasty behavior in the future. Making noises while eating, wasting food, and not cleaning the space after they eat are all bad behaviors that parents should attend to. Taught them to eat calmly and neatly and not to make any disturbance for others in the group.

How would this portray your life? Let's discuss some of them.

To create healthy relationships

A child who is taught good manners will find it easier to gain friends in school and peer groups. They show respect and loyalty in a relationship and receive acceptance among the friends group. The social interaction skills get developed and help build pleasant relationships with family, friends, coworkers, and everyone else they come into contact with.

Keep himself clean and his surroundings

They constantly clean their surroundings and make them comfortable and appealing. Try not to mess things up and take initiative in such matters to create a healthy and positive environment around you. This also prepares him for sound interactions with people and to develop his own social circle.

compassion for others.

They develop empathy for others and their problems. Their friends, peers, or family may find it easier to open up in front of them as they begin to listen without any biased judgments and try not to hurt them with words or actions. Also, they have sympathy for others who seem to be going through misery and have a heart to help them.

Make life smooth and enjoyable.

In the long term, this would make them a better person. They have enough friends, a good social connection, and a better personality. Learning good manners from childhood is important because it shapes young minds, thoughts, and behaviors to make them more companionable.

Let's list out some of the pleasing manners.
