manners

How everyone going with learning manners?

Alexander has this past week started to say please and thank you without me asking him to. He's just working out sorry. When he's done something wrong he'll say sorry when I've told him it's wrong. However today he started saying sorry and he hadn't done anything so I asked him why he was sorry and he told me what he wanted to do which was naughty :rolleyes: (throwing a toy/breaking something/drawing on something..) then I told him not to do it and he just said "ok" and didn't do it. And yesterday he was playing with DH when some music came on TV he likes to dance to and he said "rorry Daddy. Dance time" Smile I'm sure he's gained some smartness/cheekyness since he started talking Lol

This is one thing Ryken has had down for a long time, other than that he is naughty :D. He uses please, thank you, your welcome, sorry, bless you, and excuse me.

They both sound like dolls. Smile

Kate has been saying please and thank you for a while, but is starting to get lazy about it. We have been teaching her yes/no ma'am/sir, but she still gets confused about when to say ma'am and sir. When she wants something I will remind her to ask nicely and she'll say, "May I have some [whatever] please?" Smile There are some times when she will say, without being prompted, "Thank you for cooking, Mommy." It's soooo sweet. My 4-year-old doesn't even do that! lol

Hunter says "s'il vous plait" and please, "merci" and thank you, "excuser" and sorry. It's cute that he says it in both languages. I do have to remind him sometimes :rolleyes:... Maman du lait! And I say: what do you say?? and he answer "s'il vous plait"!! Lol

Lily is pretty good at manners. It's so cute. She says please, thank you, your welcome, sorry, bless you, and excuse me, all without prompting. She also says yes mam/no mam a lot b/c I say it to her, but she also gets confused between when to say mam and sir, b/c she will tell Lucas "no mam!" LOL.

My favorite was when the other day she, out of the blue, said "Hug please Mommy!" Love her!!!

Jocelyn understands that when a transaction happens, you either say "thank you" or "you're welcome." She doesn't quite understand which one to say when. At this point, she usually says "thank you" when you give her something, but she will often follow it by "you're welcome." Or, she will hand us something and say "thank you" when she gives it to us.

We are teaching her to say "more, please" instead of just "more," and this is going pretty well.

A few times, she's said "Sorry, Mommy" after she's had a fit or done something naughty. Not consistenly, but enough that I don't think it's a fluke when she says it.

At this point, manners aren't a priority for us, but we're certainly not going to discourage them. :rolleyes:

Makenna has been pretty good with her manners for a while, she still needs some prompting sometimes.

The funniest is if she hears someone burp or pass gas, she will say "excuse you".....too funny!!

Liberty does OK on saying please and thank you... and I even heard her say "excuse me" to her brother when she was trying to get by him! When she forgets, however, I make her say please before I give her what she's asking for, and make her say thank you after she gets it.
