Excellent article.

So much great stuff in here. Mostly about parenting, but applicable for life in general. Model the way.

Research and Development intern Kat Arcement sends along this charming piece:

Want to learn how to answer the telephone, or how to answer the door, or how to be nice? In Chicago, a full two years before Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was released, you could if between the ages of 4-14 attend a class in manners. As Paula Person states, “I was rather tired with people saying children are horrible.”

 So are we, Paula Person. So are we.

(BTW, these kids are ADORABLE.)

I took this exact class in the early 80s with Paula Person! Still remember (and use) what I learned.
