Tips for Raising a Well-Mannered Child

Well-mannered children are always appreciated everywhere and by everyone. Let us take a look at some tips for raising a well-mannered child.

Raising a well-mannered child in today’s modern world is not that easy. Few studies have found that babies who are about 90 days old can easily get hold of the things happening around them. Thus, if a parent wants to groom the child with good manners, behaviour of the elders at home is very important as the same would be followed by the kids.

1. Teach the Sharing Behaviour

Sharing is a wonderful manner which is required in every child and this is one of the top most appreciable behaviour. In today’s world, kids are not much involved in common activities and hence, do not get a chance to mingle with other kids and share their belongings. While playing with neighbourhood friends, assist them to share the toys, snacks or simple stationary items like pencil or rubber.  Similarly, few things must not be shared with anyone and the same has to be taught. Tooth brush, inner wears, comb are some of the items which cannot be shared with anyone else. In order to bring this habit, maintain separate stuffs for each one at home and make the children know about it.

2. Give Space for Speaking

Enable the children to speak out what they feel and never restrict them. Communicate a lot and make them feel that they are free to discuss anything with mom or dad. If something goes wrong with their thought, insist the truth and teach them to be honest. For example, if the child has scored less marks in subjects, sit and discuss what went wrong during the study time, what are the solutions to overcome the problem and what would be the consequences if continuing the same mistake. Allow the children also to give some ideas and opinions on any matter at home. By this way, they will be honest and tell the truth all the time.

3. Use the Magical Words

There are two wonderful magical words which can smoothen the situation any time by anyone. Yes, they are “Thank you” and “Please”. Teaching these words would help the children to know the importance of life and conversational skills. To inculcate this habit, as a parent, say “Please” in front of the child whenever you have to request someone to do some favour. Similarly, say “Thank you” once the help is done by others. This kind of behaviour surely helps in raising a well-mannered child.

4. Word of Praise and Suggestions

Just a single word of praise for the children is a boost to learn many good things in life. When children perform a task and it ends up well, appreciate them with beautiful words, reward with tiny gifts or mark stars for their activities. Hearing such kind of words or receiving rewards will make children happier and motivate them to do more and more positive things. At the same time, when a mistake is found out, try to explain the negative impacts and let them know not to repeat it again. If this is done at the early stage, they would easily understand the mistakes and overcome them as a well-mannered child.

5. Educate the Significance of Patience

Most of the children lose the patience only by seeing the behaviour of their parents. Hence, mom or dad must be the best example of being patient at any point of time. If there is something to be done immediately at home and there is no chance of doing it, parents must not show their temper in front of their children. Be cool and wait to let it happen. By observing this behaviour, the child will come to learn the importance of patience and try to hold on for anything in their life.

Do not expect the children to turn into a perfect human overnight. It is not that simple to teach all the good manners and raise them 100% perfect in a single day. Give some time, teach manners one by one and wait to see the results in the upcoming years.
