Eating meals with our friends and family at home is a great time to learn new and try new things in a safe place. This way, when you go to a restaurant or party, your good manners will stick with you and you’ll enjoy the food and celebrations more!
Manners are something to learn as a family to make mealtimes more enjoyable. Things like saying “please”, “thank you”, and “you’re welcome” at home at the table will make them a long-term habit when you’re not at the table. Not only do manners matter so you can be polite at the table, they also help prevent the spread of germs, help encourage family conversations, and make everyone’s day a little more pleasant.

How about these folks?!
