Parent Should Remember Courtesy Phrases Mean Nothing to Children By ALICE JUDSON PEALE We are often so anxious to have our children appear well before others that we cannot resist the temptation to teach them ingratiating responses and pretty littls speeches. "Please," "Thftnk you," "Excuse me" and "How do you do?" are painfully taught to youngsters who are actually in tears of shyness over To a very little child these terms of expression have no meaning whatsoever, and if he learns to say them it is in parrot-like mimicry that bears no relation to real good manners. Such manners must spring from a genuine appreciation of the feeling of others, which the child must be permitted to develop gradually as a result of his daily living. The child surrounded by people who are genuinely courteous to each other, and to him, learns to use the forms of courtesy as soon aa they acquire meaning in the course of his experience. I have seen three and four year olds scolded and shaken for not saying "Excuse me." A fine lesson in consideration for other people's feelings. Perhaps the best way to teach your child manners is never to insist upon them, but to accept kindly intention in place of the form. Be sure that in your own dealings Japan Green Tea Only the finest first crop Japans are used in the delicious blend of MILLION JARS USED YEARLY Fresh from trte Gardens" tt with him you do not neglect either :he spirit of consideration or tha forms of courtesy which you would have him learn. Company manners, taught for show, are apt to give svay in the most humiliating fashion and at tne most awkward moments. The little boy who told his mother to "shut up" in the presence of a visitor answered her exclamation of shocked surprise with, "Well, that's what you say to me, so why can't I say it to you?"
