What ever happened to children having manners. Have you noticed that they just run right into you and never say excuse me. The parents never say anything either. It really does seem like the children have no manners because the parents do not have any either. That is why I taught all of my children, grandchildren and great grandchildren manners. And they better use there manners when they are with me. The picture is mine taken by me.

I think the major problem, certainly here in the UK, is that many of the parents are still little more than children themselves.

@LadyDuck Too many parents try to be best friends with their children and consequently behave in a manner not really fitting with their role as a parent.

@WorDazza Parents must not be "friends", they are educators.

I agree charity begins at home...mother is the first teacher of a child and she is most responsible person in making a child's future by incorporating all the best qualities in him! I appreciate your views and your deeds too dear @ jstory07 ! Thanks!

You have to also show your kids manners and respect for them to pick it up from you.

Completely agree, it isn't kids fault, it is parents fault, sometimes they don't have any rules in their own homes and kids have the control over the parents, unbeliever. Parents have to have authority over their children and control their behavior.

That is the only way of teaching them dear @jstory07 ! We need to become role models infront of them! Thanks!

When parents have no manners at all, they cannot teach manners to their children and it seems that school is teaching nothing about manners in our days.

I find it more and more that people never learned what please, thank you, and excuse me mean. When I go on my scooter and let someone through very rarely do they thank you and if in a mood I will say you are welcome and sometimes they will say thank you or not answer at all. They will take up the whole sidewalk and I cannot get bye. I will have to say something or go slowly behind them.

It would be shocking for them to see others with none...your grand children and great grandchildren would be shocked I mean. Each generation has their way of living...otherwise they get ridiculed.

@jstory07 But sometimes I feel that we may actually be hurting them by making them remain in that good manners set. Most people are not...so they will possibly get hooted at.

I think people with good manners go much further than those who can't be bothered to say their pleases and thank yous. I've noticed this with children too. And as you say often the parents don't have any manners either.

As a Teacher, on parents day, many parents ask the teacher to teach manners to their children. They don't understand that children first learning environment is the home. Many would ask what the Government paying teachers for? Not to teach their children?

You can try but the job of teaching manners shold start at a early age from the parents.

Agree, they canĀ“t wait until someone else teaches their children something they have to learn in their home, manners are parents work.

@dentistnd Exactly. Parents are the first teachers. Our schools are clearly understood as 'academic educators'. Ethical and moral education rest solely upon parents. Off course schools do teach an element of morality but it is more intrinsic education and was not supposed to replace the duty of parents to build moral fiber in young children who will one day grow up to be responsible adults and parents in turn.

I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that most parents are so busy on their cell phones and tablets anymore that they don't take the time to spend with the kids anymore. They are all so wrapped up in what they are doing, they have gotten lazy on teaching and noticing what the kids are doing. Just what I have noticed when I am out and what I see.

Sometimes I wish technology wouldn't have gone so far, kids have no imaginations anymore either because they are always on XBox, their phones, tablets, anything where a parent can plop them down and not have to deal with them. Sad world its getting to be, no wonder so many kids are so disrespectful these days, no rules.

General cutesy and kindness is not something people exemplify in daily life nor their kids. :( Mine tend to just be real quiet and wait for people to move. I keep telling them its okay to say hi to people and ask to get through!
