But it's not like ill interrupt your family in the shops and tell them how to behave. Lol.
    This!!!! This says perfectly what I mean by 'prompting'

    If you demonstrate to your children good manners, they'll learn. Whilst I do encourage my children to say please and thank you, they have picked it up just by me saying it to them. They also say you're welcome and excuse me without me ever having to force them, because I say it to them. They're 4 and 2.

    I think not interrupting is very important as well.

    And stay seated at dinner table.

    That's exactly how I feel, and it is working for us. I like to know he says it because he means it, as opposed to saying it because he may be reprimanded iykwim.

    Sorry, a bit of a hijack here - I was always taught to call adults Mr or Mrs as a child, but I can't remember how mum enforced that, how do you do it? I'd like my little one to show the same respect to adults. Also when I was young I don't think I had any friends with parents who weren't married to each other so you could safely assume that the parent's last name was the same as the child, but with so many kids with different names to their parents today, how do you find out what the parents last names are for your kids to call them that?

    For me my Mum would just say "Say hello to Mrs. John" etc etc etc. And calling your teachers "Mr" and "Mrs" just kind of helped it along.
    With the unknowing of the name, I used to just call them "Hello Mrs. Becs Mum!" Or something like that.

    To keep it short and sweet there are three things that I feel are VITAL. The others are also very important, but "Please", "Thank you" and "I'm sorry" are absolute essentials in my book.

    I can't stand kids that talk back to adults or give sass and there's many other things that strike me as rude but those three will generally get you through most things without you looking like a chav lol.

    I think that's a bit outdated. Even as a child we generally referred to our friends parents by their first name unless otherwise specified. My mother always went by her first name.
    I cringe when called 'MRS/MISS xxxxx'... Absolutely hate it.
    I think it's just safer to go by first name these days too.

    My parents always preferred to be called Mr and Mrs by my friends, and I had a friend who called all of our friends parents by their first names and it even made me cringe in my early teens. There were a few who corrected me and would tell me to call them by their first names but most were happy to be called Mr or Mrs. I'm 23 so it wasn't that long ago for me, so I don't agree that it's old fashioned, but old fashioned or not, I'll be ensuring my daughter calls adults Mr or Mrs unless otherwise specified.
