How many ”cringe worthy” mother-moments can you still remember from when your kids were little? One of my most memorable occurred when my youngest daughter was about 5, and we had been invited for lunch at a friends house. Of course she waited for the ONLY split second interlude of silence at the table to loudly comment, “Susan, my mom says it’s bad table manners to chew with your mouth open”! Okay, yup…I think I forgot we had to be someplace 5 minutes ago.
Before the kids or grandkids sit down to another holiday or family dinner, you might want to take a look at what creative mom Staci Ericson devised to reinforce good table manners in her home. The cards are illustrated to depict good and bad table manners. Family members can exchange them during mealtimes, to encourage good table manners.
