SPEAKING MANNERS

DURATION:  30 mins

OUTCOME:  Demonstrating respect and manners in conversation with others.

RATIONALE:  Once “please” enters an interaction, a command becomes a courteous request and the relationship in that moment becomes unhindered by negativity. For example “Hand me the towel”, comes across as direct and impolite, but once the word ‘please’ is added to the statement, “Please, hand me the towel”, the tone of the conversation is one of respect and politeness. This one simple, yet powerful word changes the way in which we are seen by other people and how we are treated in return.

KEY MESSAGES:  

Please and thank you are really the magic words.

• Using bad language is not acceptable.

• Interrupting is not good manners.

• If someone speaks to you it is polite to answer them.

• Shouting is not good manners.

• Always do your best to be polite to others.
