Excellent advice for more than teens. My 5-year-old granddaughter found it very enlightening! It is clearly laid out and spiced with humour. Keep me in mind if you ever decide to remove it from the collection.

Are good manners relevant, or are they simply a bunch of bothersome, outdated rules invented to make life miserable and complicated? Will you ever need to use them? Does anyone care about them, and why are they often so hard to remember?
Why do manners seem so important to adults … and so insignificant to kids?
The truth is that manners are still relevant. They are skills that you’ll use for the rest of your life, and good manners (or their absence) say a lot about you. Manners weren’t invented to make life miserable – instead, they exist to make life more pleasant.
Manners are important anywhere, anytime. When you have good manners, you know how to act in all kinds of situations. People will enjoy being with you. You’ll have more self-confidence.
Good manners are important to use at home, on the playground, and at school.
Believe it or not, manners should even be used in the school cafeteria. That’s right – despite appearances, it really isn’t the place for rude food. (Good manners in the cafeteria definitely do NOT include: food-throwing, noodle-slurping, putting straws in your nose, wiping your fingers on your friends, or worse.)
And here’s a secret: the more you use good manners, the easier they are to remember!
In a humorous but informative fashion, Dude, That’s Rude! will provide kids with the necessary do’s and don’ts of good manners, the reasons why they are important, and lots of effective “smooth moves” for sticky situations.
