Naturally, we tell our children to do the same. We tell them how important it is to do these things, to have manners, to be respectful. But is it a case of do as I say, not as I do? You might hold open a door for a stranger, but do you do the same for your children? Do you make a point of saying please when asking them to get ready for school, or do you slip into the habit of giving orders and sighing pointedly until they're followed?
Do you think setting a good example is important?
Or are manners over-rated?
