25 Manners that everyone should follow
Flashcards for Manners
Terms in this set (25)
When asking for something, say "Please."
When receiving something, say "Thank You."
Do not interrupt grown-ups who are speaking with each other unless there is an emergency.
They will notice you and respond when they are finished talking.
If you do need to get somebody's attention right away, the phrase "Excuse Me" is the most polite way for you to enter the conversation.
When you have any doubt about doing something, ask permission first. It can save you from many hours of grief later.
Keep negative opinions to yourself and out of earshot of adults and teachers.
Do not comment on other people's physical characteristics unless, it's to compliment them, which is always welcome.
When people ask you how you are, tell them and then ask how they are.
When you have spent time at your friend's house, remember to thank his or her parents for having you over and for the good time you had.
Knock on closed doors-and wait to see if there's a response-before entering.
When you make a phone call, introduce yourself first then ask if you can speak with the person you are calling.
Be appreciative and say "thank you" for any gift you receive. A handwritten thank-you note can have a powerful effect.
Never use foul language in front of adults.
Don't call people mean names.
Do not make fun of anyone for any reason. Teasing shows that you are weak, and ganging up on someone is bullying.
Even if a play or an assembly is boring, sit there quietly. The performers and presenters are doing their best.
If you bump into somebody, immediately say "Excuse Me"
Cover your mouth when you cough and don't pick you nose in public, or during meal time. That's nasty, wash your hands immediately.
As you walk throught the door, look to see if you can hold it open for someone else.
If you come across a parent, a teacher, or a neighbor working on something, ask if you can help. If they say "Yes," do so-you may learn something new.
When an adult asks you for a favor, do it without grumbling and with a smile.
When someone helps you, say "Thank You." That person will likely want to help you again. This is espicially true with teachers.
Use eating untensils properly. If you are unsure how to do so, ask your parents to teach you or watch what adults do.
Keep a napkin on your lap; use it to wipe your mouth when necessary.
Don't reach for things at the table; ask to have them passed.
