Good manners for kids are important for success in school, work and life. Below is a partial excerpt from my book, Smile & Succeed for Teens: Must-Know People Skills for Today's Wired World:
SAY PLEASE AND THANK YOU
Good manners for kids never go out of style. They are expected in all social and business situations.
Say “Please” when you request something from your family, friends, or customers. For example, “May I please borrow the car tonight?” or “Would you please unlock your gate so we can mow your backyard?” Be sincere and genuine.
SAY “THANK YOU”
Say “Thank you” when someone does something nice for you. These two words cannot be overused when showing your appreciation.
When a customer leaves your business, thank them for coming in. Say “Thank you” in a warm and genuine manner. Or say “Thank you for coming in. I look forward to seeing you again.”
