Yelm Prairie Elementary
At Prairie, we know how important it is to focus on more than just academics. Helping your child build a sound character is equally important to their future success. We have made a strong effort to focus on good manners by teaching students to use “please” and “thank you”.
Knowing when and how to use manners builds confidence. When children know what is expected of them and have practiced using their manners, it makes them feel secure and comfortable knowing that they are doing the right thing. Predictability puts everyone at ease.
Manners show that you care about how other people feel. Good manners are a way to peacefully interact with people around you and are a way of respecting them. By respecting others, you actually respect yourself. "Respect" acknowledges that other people exist and are worthy of recognition.
Manners show an understanding of cultural and generational values. Every culture and generation has unique characteristics and acceptable ways to behave. Saying please and thank you is a basic expectation in most countries. Good manners will never go out of style.
Polite behavior will help your child's social development and acceptance by others. Kids who aren't taught social graces are at a distinct disadvantage. An ill-mannered child is unpleasant to adults and kids alike.
Using manners is a good habit. Practicing good manners does not guarantee success in the world, but can make the pathway through life smoother.
