Vintage Manners & Etiquette in Modern Times


The Perfect Guide To Holiday Etiquette

The Children’s Ears are not blocked

Weak upbringing is the authentic source of every manner of disrespect in children. Some parents today are daily building rude children by constantly indulging in acts that are clearly recorded as reasons for their children to be ill-mannered.

For example, an eight-year old student was told to clear out his table like other students did after lunch at school and he refused. The instructing teacher however, made sure he cleared the table. When he got home, he reported the teacher. When the mother telephoned the teacher, she said the teacher shouldn’t have forced her son to clear the table, because she is even the one who clears his table after meal at home. Since that day onward, this student leaves his table messy after meal.  

Another example is of a student who injured his school mates badly every chance he got to play with them. When his violent acts became much, the teacher punished him. When the student reported the incident to his mother, she called and warned the teacher never to punish her son again. She said whenever her son injures any of the students that, the teacher should just send her the student’s parent’s phone number, and she would appeal to them. The teacher then asked her, “How many parents would you appeal to?” For how long would you continue to appeal to parents if you don’t let this child know what he’s doing is wrong?” and she replied with “As long as my son injures his school mates.”

These two students and many like them are denied the opportunity to be desirous of cultivating good manners that would help them for total success in their academic, personal lives and future businesses. So what if you can’t teach manners at home as parents, or don’t have the energy, time or opportunity to “do it all.” Should you intercept the little morals the school is trying to impart your child when this is all going to be for your later good and the good of the nation tomorrow?

 If you cannot clearly spell out what passes as good manners for yourself as parent and your children, then you are the one to be held responsible for future loose behavior and extremes of your children.  Lack of chastisement no matter how modest when children go wrong is tantamount to an open invitation of banishment of respect even between you and the children. It explains why some parents suffer unexplained future abandonment by their children. Respect departs from this type of parents in later years, making them an easy target in the hands of severe heartbreak.

The children’s ears are not blocked. Their ears pick the good and bad you speak in their favor, store them to turn them into something positive or negative. Nonsense pampering, lack of firmness and indulging children’s disrespectful acts to outsiders, self or to the people at home is always responsible for children’s hostility and insolence. What do you speak around your children? In what way has your weakness, carelessness, what you term as love for them, lack of understanding of what good manners require and nonchalant attitude contributed lack of respect and good manners in your children’ lives? Make amends today before it’s too late. Help shine better light for them.

Elements of Proper Business Handshake


Important Manners

Your tight schedule for the day or mood should not direct your manners. When you step out of the bed in the morning as a woman, the first thing you should do is make your bed before leaving the house.


Sound of Cutlery on the Plate

Today when eating with spoons and forks is rather traditional, it is not enough to know in which right hands to hold the cutlery. You are as well obligated not to make noise with this cutlery when using them. A lot of us can’t help but feel grossed out, panicked, disgusted or even angry to the extent of feeling like punching a person’s face when they create the sound of cutlery clinking against the plate. Now you can enjoy your informal or formal meals without worrying about such issues. Follow this link to learn how to use: Forks and Spoons

How to Make Your Relationship Work when Called into Question


Respect for Others

Etiquette civilizes every human being who is responsive to its information to treating people of all ages and walks of life properly, being kind, and considerate. And consideration for the rights and feelings of others is not simply a rule for behavior in public but the very foundation upon which social life is built.

One of the rules of etiquette, the first which hundreds of people simply summarize or explain or decorate is: Never to do anything that is unkind to others. Never take more than your share—whether of the road in driving a car, of chairs on a train or seats on a bus, or food at the table.

People who dispose dirt into drains leave heavy rainfall to expose this drainage and then, cause deadly triad of virus, bacteria and fungi in the community. You can’t possibly call yourself a well-mannered considerate fellow if this is your behavior. Just the other day, when I was traveling on the public bus, the window of the car driving side by side with my bus opened. A driver of the car pushed his hand out and dropped plastic of drinking bottle water onto the road. I suppose others should have been grateful that he didn’t drop the bottle inside his expensive grand car or rather he hadn’t dropped it at all.

Dropping pure water nylon on the streets or thrusting your hand out of your private car or public vehicles to trash snacks nylon, soda and plastic of drinking bottle water along the public highway is not a considerate behavior. By doing this you leave a great mess for other people to walk or drive past, and to make a producing place for flies, mosquitoes and supply sustenance for malaria and other bacteria. 

Choose a nice way to repay the land you temporarily occupy. Be considerate of others. Greater dignity of manners is required of all of us. Let us keep our environment clean.
