Teaching Manners with Toddlers and Preschoolers

You can share this fun link 
from “Sesame Street” on the subject manners.

I know . . . tough subject with this age group. So how can we teach toddlers and preschoolers how to use good manners?

Children learn by example. They notice and pay attention to their environment. We as adults can set the example of how to use good manners in different ways:

  • when we are talking to family members in the home
  • when we are in public exchanging conversation with the cashier, in traffic (ha ha), talking to neighbors, at an event, or at the park
  • when we are in a public place that is expected for us to use our “indoor voice" like: restaurants, the library, or church
  • when we are sharing things in the home: it’s fun to play act with an older toddler or preschooler in how to share toys with a sibling or friend
