Mister Manners

Posted by on November 22, 2010

Joel is so much more polite than Alex. Getting Alex to say “please” and “thank you” is a constant battle. We always have to instruct him to ask nicely to hear “please” and prod him with “What do you say?” to hear “thank you”. We sometimes have to gently nudge Joel with “How do you ask?” to hear “peas”, but he also sometimes says it without prompting. When we hand him something he wanted, like a cup of milk, he says “dah-ooh” without the slightest prompting. He has such an adorable smile when he says it, too.

It’s amazing how different kids from the same parents can be, isn’t it?
