7 Etiquette Tips For Teens

by Lois Jamieson
Hey teenagers, want to make your parents, grandparents and teachers happy? Nothing works better than good manners.
Here are some tips for you:
1.      Remove your baseball cap when in the house. Especially when sitting down to a meal either at home or in a restaurant.

2.      Get in the habit of writing thank you notes, especially to your grandparents. No e-mail, texting or tweeting your thanks. Sure, we know you’re in a hurry, but think how much time was spent picking out a gift for you.

3.      Food should be seen and not heard. Please don’t slurp your soup. When you are eating avoid talking with your mouth full.

4.      It’s hard to like everyone, but it’s not hard to be polite.  Try to think of the feelings of others. Sometimes being considerate of others can change a difficult person and at the same time boost your self esteem.

5.      Being courteous isn’t always easy, but it has rewards.

6.      Just remember to say please and thank you and everyone will love you.

7.      Respect others’ privacy.
Congratulations, your manners are perfect.
