….so why these days do they seem to be used so little?
I’ve noticed it a lot now that we attend children’s parties, play gyms and even at the school gate.
Most children tend to say please and thank you (most, not all) but manners is more than that and people seem to be forgetting that.
Manners should be taught from the very beginning. It’s not something that is introduced later in life, it should be a basic principle taught from the word go.
The loss of manners is leading to a ruder, impatient society where everyone believes that they deserve what they want at the exact point they want it and screw everyone else.
