We can all take a lesson from this lacrosse coach. Seeing one of his students behaving badly while boarding their team's flight, he had him write an apology to the airline and fellow passengers and read it aloud.
We spend a lot of time teaching our children practical skills, like how to tie their shoes and how to ride a bike. Sometimes, however, we neglect to help them to master an even more important skill: the art of being a friend.
Children can be both excited and bored when at a restaurant. With a good game plan, you can help your children learn how to behave appropriately in a restaurant so that you can all enjoy the experience.
Whether you're on the phone, busy on your computer, or talking to another adult, it can be frustrating when your children constantly interrupt you. What's surprising to learn is that they do it because they always get a response from you when they do!
