Message length 300 characters recommended

Dinnertime is the perfect place to practice conversational skills and table manners with kids, such as keeping your napkin on your lap, chewing with your mouth closed, and learning which fork to use with each course. Take advantage of those mealtime moments. Some manners to get started: Please, Thank you, May I? I'm sorry. How can I help? Please pass.
Some families practice a new manner each week. You might write the new manner (such as eating soup without slurping) on an index card and post it on the refrigerator as a family reminder so that everybody is practicing the same manner together.
