The best way to teach manners to your toddler is to display them yourself. Say 'Thank you'
to your toddler while he gives you a toy, etc. Taking him to set your dinning table neatly
with proper utensils and napkins says a lot to your toddler about mealtime decorum.
Around age 1 year, your child will acquire the language skill very fast. So make sure that
"Please", "Thank you" and " Sorry" become part of his
Greeting people and saying good bye are other basic social skill that toddlers pick up
easily. Rearing you repeat the " magic words" over to over in situations at home
and away from home will make him much more about common courtesy.
Toddlers are just about understanding the concept of sharing. The best way to make a
toddler share is to give him too similar toys and help him handover one his playmate.
