Developing Social Graces
How do children learn social graces? It is by our example and emphasis of the manners and of that which is thoughtful and appropriate by which our children develop positive social skills. We should model to them kindness, thoughtfulness, tact, forgiveness, generosity, and love which is for others. It is a parent's responsibility to teach them how to stand tall, listen closely, and to speak graciously.
Live wisely among [others] and make the most of every opportunity. Let your conversation be gracious and attractive so that you will have the right response for everyone. Col 4:5
