In this practical book, parents, teachers, and child-care providers will discover the keys to raising well-mannered children--with results in less than six weeks. From training a two-year-old to say "please" to talking with a teenage boy about his treatment of girls, this book unfolds step-by-step techniques for teaching manners. It also shows parents how to instill in their children a true concern for others and encourages them to grab hold of every teachable moment they can to show their children something they can use the rest of their lives.
