A school of good manners is one of the methods for training children and adolescents to good habits and manners. Close to this method is the Hall of Fame "I can do it!" and an educational table.
The optimal age of children, which can be useful School of good manners - from 12 to 15 years. It is possible to use both in schools and in boarding schools, although initially the method was invented for family upbringing. If the child is alone, at first, serious attention is required of one of the parents to track the progress and difficulties, what is done and what is not. If there are two or more children in the family, this method is much easier: by virtue of natural jealousy, they usually keep track of themselves so that the brother or sister do not lie to themselves too much.
Children are announced in the morning: "You have a school of good manners. Your task every day to come up with one simple point about your behavior, first of all expressing a friendly attitude to each other or to your parents, and in the evening on this item you make an assessment. Items can be different: to greet everyone in the morning "Good morning!" With a smile, to help my mother to cover the table, to treat each other politely (not Aska, and Asya) ... Every day you add yourself a new item, and on all rates. All points are written to the computer. While the results of the previous day have not been summed up and the new item has been invented, no entertainment is the first thing of the day. "
• If children find it difficult to come up with new items, parents sometimes can help them by making their own, recommendatory list, from which children can choose.
• It is hardly advisable to include in the list of cases of household help, which were already in the past on children (for example, go to the store).
• The assessment should not be made for "I did," but "I did," and evaluate objectively, from the perspective of an outside observer. Not "I told everyone good night," but "I heard everyone I wished good night!"
