The Rite of Parenthood #10

The successful parent knows the importance of raising a courteous and respectful child.

The successful parent realizes that it's the spirit and earnestness behind the words that matter more than the actual words.

For example, when the 2 y/o belches, and is prompted, "What do you say when you burp?", it is completely appropriate when she says in all earnestness and gravity:

"Thank you!"
