Manners Scenarios: Lesson #1- Interrupting

Depending on their age, work on different manners with your kids by acting out the situations.  It’s really fun!

While we rode in the car I practiced manners when it comes to interrupting with my 3 and 5 year olds.  I was the child and they were having a conversation.  I blurted into their conversation.  They got it right away!

I showed them 2 ways to politely get someone’s attention by acting it out in 2 other scenarios.

#1  I waited until they were done talking and then I said what I needed to say.

#2  I politely said, “Excuse me.”  And then I asked my question.

Even at 3 and 5 they understood and I was amazed when later that same night they used the tools I’d taught them.  Now they ask, “Let’s play the manners game!!”
