    My own manners aren’t exactly up to finishing school snuff (although I, unlike some people living in my house, at least know that it is terribly gauche to lick one’s knife [unless, of course, it is wet with one's enemy's blood and one is swearing a dread vow to vanquish said enemy]), and I don’t recall being formally taught manners at any point. So I thought this book might be interesting.

So I thought this book might be interesting. The book covers a year’s worth of little lessons in manners and includes several activities to help children learn said lessons. Topics range from table manners to telephone manners to behaving properly at various religious ceremonies. Activities are stuff like having the child plan a dinner with appropriate courses, having the child write thank-you notes, researching other religions, etc. My little one is only a few weeks old at the time of this writing, so it’s hard for me to say how useful the activities might be. I did like some of the author’s ideas – for example, trying to make thank-you notes a fun family tradition instead of a chore – but many of the activities sounded dull to me. I think they are based on experience, though, because the author has children herself and teaches seminars on manners to children and adults alike. So perhaps it’s more likely that I’m off base. Bottom line: probably worth $1. Probably not worth $14.95. You make the call.

    3 1/2 stars. I skimmed through this back in 2003. There is good info on all sorts of topics and situations. There is so much info it can be a little overwhelming, so I would just recommend doing what I did. Find the subjects or parts that you feel are relevant to your family and that they need to improve on. This book can start to feel a bit nit-picky at times.

    Really enjoying this "once a day" approach to teaching manners. It's comprehensive enough that hopefully at the end of the year, I'll at least know I've gone over the important stuff with the kids. I read or summarize an entry at family dinner and call it "the manners minute." We've had some good discussions come up because of this as well.

    This book is very well-written by an experienced mother. She really covers the way that a child should behave in almost every single scenario you can think of in his daily life. Even as a teenager who is very good at impressing adults, I still have a lot more manners left to learn. This is definitely a book to recommend to all parents and older children who simply don't know how to behave. This book is very well-written by an experienced mother.

    I read this book, initially, because I am teaching a manners class in a homeschooling co-op. However, I found myself thoroughly enjoying it and learning many things, too.

    Cu unele maniere nu sunt deacord, în rest e o carte utila. Am citit-o în voce și pentru fiica mea. Recomand

    Worth it! Sometimes arguments can be extinguish if we only used manners.

    I never lose my place in this book because it is organized by topic and then by date. I would prefer that the book addressed the child. While it is quite comprehensive, there are a few things I might not have included such as finger bowls. . . but, I have learned some things and hopefully the kids have at the very least, learned that manners are important. I don't find any entry on staying in lines/not cutting--one of my pet peeves on manners.

Overall though, I read a topic (about a paragraph or two) daily with our 9 and 13 year old boys for about 4 months---that's enough. On to other things now. I think it might have been a little more interesting if it hadn't been arranged by topic AND date. If you read through by date, it can get a little boring spending two weeks reading about etiquette at various religious ceremonies (although, there was helpful information in that section).

    Good portions of this book are incredibly useful, and then there are whole sections that are just...not. The daily format seems great, until you realize that there are multiple weeks devoted to attending various kinds of wedding ceremonies. (The section on Mormon temple weddings is inaccurate.) Most children are not going to need to attend that many weddings and without getting to practice regularly, the info is not likely to stay with them.

I just don't think the daily format works overall, not with this level of etiquette. There are a lot more daily kinds of manners that I think would be more useful for my child to practice/reinforce than learning what to do when given an audience with the Pope. The book is fairly comprehensive in other areas, so it's worth a read, just not one I would keep on hand, nor would I be likely to use it's daily lesson format with my kids.

    Why, oh why did I even try? This book, for etiquette sake, is not a good read. Sure I knew with a segment titled "Eye Contact" where the first sentence says "There's hardly an aspect of communication more important than eye contact" that this is not the book for a mother of a child with autism BUT, but, but when I got to the FULL chapter toward the END of the book I should add, titled "Being Considerate to People with Special Needs" & it is all about physical disabilities... No Autism, No Special Why, oh why did I even try? This book, for etiquette sake, is not a good read.

No Autism, No Special Needs Children, etc. I wanted to throw the book. Everything in this book should be common sense & to me, nothing is more important to teach your children kindness OVER "manners". If you have to read this book, you already cannot teach manners.

    Basic manners nicely laid out in simple detail. Basically some guidelines for making sure others feel comfortable, or at least are not made uncomfortable by your actions. As a parent it's good to think about how to convey at least basic manners, but one a day seems difficult to deal with. Some situations she goes over are ones I haven't had to deal with, hard to give the kids practice with those. So I most enjoyed reading about the different points on manners, and thinking, oh yeah, better make Basic manners nicely laid out in simple detail.

    I didn't read every word of this book, but I skimmed it and read chapters that were important to me. There was a lot of good advice here and I liked it a lot. The most important take away message for me was- you must expect good manners from your kids at home if you want them to have good manners outside your home. Use the safe confines of your own home to let your kids practice having good manners. I didn't read every word of this book, but I skimmed it and read chapters that were important to me.

    This is actually not the copy I read, I read the updated version with tips for Facebook, email, cell phones, etc. I thought it was good. I can think of a few adults who should read this. I read it today while were were at JumpStreet (The trampoline place, not the creepy murder place). I took notes on the pages I liked and will probably try to pick it up used from amazon.

    This book is certainly thorough in its list of manners. I don't know if I would be able to teach all of them to my daughter but I hope I can help her be a more polite kid. I am appalled at the lack of manners in most kids these days. This book is certainly thorough in its list of manners.

    This one is going a little slow... because it is organized with a topic for each day. It appears very comprehensive and very helpful, it just seems this might take awhile to get through. Will update later...

    This book was a little overwhelming with a new manner every day. But, it did give me some good ideas about how my children (and myself) should behave in public and at home. We need help! I hope it's not too late. This book was a little overwhelming with a new manner every day. But, it did give me some good ideas about how my children (and myself) should behave in public and at home.

    I just kind of skimmed through this one and now it is due back at the library before I could do a more formal reading. I think I'd like to check it out again (eventually), because I don't feel like I do enough direct instruction on "proper" behavior with my kids.

    This book is being donated to my local library. It was pretty basic and not very new, but for a general reference it is a nice size with easy content.

    Rude kids=thumbs down! Politeness matters! Some of the advice is a bit formal, but I guess that comes in handy if you should find yourself in a formal situation. Good for the whole family.

    Weak execution of an interesting premise. Outdated.

    This book was brutal to read. It did not tell me anything I did not know and was all pure common sense. Some of the internet section was totally wrong and overly formal. It was extremely boring
